Echinacea PowWow WildBerry
I know there is many Echinacea’s on the market but you should take a minute to learn about this one as it has some really wonderful qualities you may adore.
The most floriferous Echinacea we’ve ever seen, thanks to its extensive branching and no-deadhead re bloom!
PowWow Wild Berry has earned it’s beauty by winning the 2010 All- American Selection(AAS) Award. One of the most breathtaking Echinacea yet, as their branching habit makes for more flowers all season.
Here is a trait you are going to love, It doesn’t need deadheaded to set new buds, so you know what that means, flowers keep coming all season long .
Compact in size , making for a container plant as well as for the landscape. Big 3- to 4-inch blooms keep their one-of-a-kind rosy-purple coloring.
Fade -proof bloom color beginning in early summer right into fall.
As with all Echinacea’s they attract butterflies and bees, and birds love their seed-filled cones in autumn and winter months.
Plant height reaches 20-24 inches tall, with a spread of 12-16 inches wide. May be one of the smaller Echinacea’s , but don’t let that fool you, as it bears more blooms that just about any other cone flower.
PowWow Wild Berry is adaptable to just about any climate area in the United States. Grow in a well drained soil area.
Plant in full sun and really thrives and appreciates any conditions Mother Nature throws it’s way.
Hardy in zones 3-9, so happy to see PowWow Wild Berry hardy in many zone areas, where people can enjoy year after year.
I am really excited about this one, I am growing this one from seed and so far it is growing very well.
