Like a choco-raspberry candy

Echinacea Cone-Fections™ Raspberry Truffle

A short, sturdy new selection with salmon-pink blooms on chocolate stems. Thick, purpurea -like foliage and strong, upright stems make this a perfect middle of the border plant for any sunny garden.

This beautiful addition to our ever-growing, popular line of Cone-fections series from the breeding brilliance of AB-Cultivars in The Netherlands. Echinacea purpurea 'Raspberry Truffle' is scrum-deli-icious in any sunny garden. This new selection is short and stout, making it the perfect companion for summer phlox, lilies, sedum, coreopsis and many more colorful perennials. The soft, yet saturated salmoney-pink bloom color is long lasting and fades to a coral pink as it ages. The ray flowers are deep salmon in color, like a wild caught sockeye salmon and the cone or center of the bloom begins chocolate brown and unfurls to reveal a very double, button top in the same salmon color as the ray petals as it matures.

The name sure fits because when the cone flowers are developing, the chocolate center looks like a truffle placed in the middle of the bloom. The stems are strong, thick and the color of dark chocolate. They hold the blooms up well and don't seem to ever flop. This new coneflower has lots pf strong E. purpurea blood in its heritage, so the foliage is lush, thick, and deep, dark green and the plant is exceptionally bushy.
