Echinacea White Swan - White Swan Cone Flower

Echinacea White Swan starts producing these fragrant white flowers in the late Spring and continues through the Summer and even into early Fall if the spent flowers are removed. Echinacea White Swan grows 18-24" tall and makes a slowly expanding clump each year. Plants do best in regularly irrigated beds with frequent removal of the dead flowers but can sustain themselves in a dry garden. Plant in full sun to light shade. Echinacea White Swan is a great choice for attracting butterflies to your garden. The White Checkered Skipper, Painted Lady, California Common Ringlet, Mormon Metalmark, Northern White Skipper, Great Purple Hairstreak, and Gray Hairstreak butterflies will use Echinacea White Swan as a nectar resource. These mid-west native plants are Winter hardy to below 0° F.
