Another fine addition to the Butterfly™ series from AB-Cultivars. Orange Skipper was named after the popular Orange Skipper butterfly, this fantastic new selection's saturated, deep neon-tangerine orange color is reminiscent of the wings of her namesake. A bright and sunny addition to any garden, this compact, yet sturdy, well branched plant makes the perfect border or massing plant. It's also really great in a container or patio planting.
This new coneflower can grow to full size in one growing season in the ground and in even less time in a container. It's as if it grows like and annual. An amazing coneflower! Single petaled coneflowers are simple, much more minimalist, and the birds and butterflies definitely prefer their cones to the doubles. They still feast on the seeds and nectar in the doubles, but they'll go to the singles first every time.
