I was the first truly dwarf, hybrid coneflower

Echinacea Pixie Meadowbrite

A long-lived, dwarf hybrid between E. purpurea, E. tennesseensis and E. angustifolia.

A charming, mini-coneflower from Dr. Jim Ault, also the breeder of Orange Meadowbrite™ and Mango Meadowbrite™, Pixie Meadowbrite™ is a true dwarf, reaching only 18'' high x 20'' to 24'' wide. Ault selected this plant for hardiness, drought tolerance, longevity, compact form, and garden durability to make a truly unique, petite hybrid coneflower. Pixie Meadowbrite™ performs best in full sun and well-drained soil. This delightful mini-coneflower yields a profusion of vibrant pink blooms from July to August. It has a denser, more compact habit than typical coneflowers and is more manageable in the garden. Will attract birds and butterflies. This wonderfully drought-tolerant, dwarf perennial is perfect for containers, perennial borders, and small urban gardens. With the habit of a pot mum, it will fit snugly into small gardens and commercial landscapes, while providing months of vibrant pink blooms.
