Reminds you of a guava flavored snow cone.

Echinacea Cone-Fections™ Guava Ice

Guava Ice has enormous, fully double guava colored blooms on thick, upright stems. It's a unique color, but a super-strong, sturdy plant with loads and loads of four inch diameter blooms.

We are proud to be releasing this double coneflower, which comes to us, once again, from the fantastically strong breeding lines of AB-Cultivars in The Netherlands. This addition to our ever-growing, popular line of Cone-fections series. When we saw this plant at the 2010 Plantarium in bloom for the first time, we were wowed by the unusual color and the huge, I mean HUGE blooms. Each fully double guava colored bloom is at least 4 inches across and just as huge. It so reminded us of a guava snow cone, hence the name 'Guava Ice'.

This is a strong plant in the garden covered with healthy, deep green strappy foliage. Thick lime green stems hold the truly gigantic blooms way up high as they fade from deep orangey-pink to a cooling shade of guava. We adore this novel color and we're so impressed that the stems can support these buxom blossoms and never flop. The reflexed ray petals are the color of ripe guava fruit and they balance the enormous, fully double cone. Every time we look at these blooms, we crave a fruity snow cone.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
