Sweet as can be

Echinacea Cone-Fections™ Sweet Sixteen™

A sister to Butterfly Kisses, Sweet Sixteen is deep raspberry pink and full of life. like a sweet party dress for a special little girl Sweet Sixteen will brighten your garden borders and mixed containers.

From our friends at AB-Cultivars in The Netherlands comes yet another breeding breakthrough. Deep raspberry pink, double flowered blooms sit atop thick, sturdy stems like a top hat on a cane. Topping out at 12" tall in full bloom, Sweet Sixteen is the perfect front of the border perennial.  It's also great in mixed containers where you need an all-summer bloomer. Sweet Sixteen is sturdy and strong and will never flop after a storm. Dozens of flowers come into bloom at once, yet they are followed by a parade of perfectly pink,  fabulously double pompom flowers for months.
