Echinacea Cone-Fections™ 'Mini Belle' PPAF

Coneflower

Bred by AB-Cultivars in the Netherlands, the Cone-fections collection of echinaceas includes vigorous, floriferous, fully double-flowered cultivars that fill out a 1-gal container nicely.Superior genes from long-lived parent plants result in reliably perennial cultivars. 'Mini Belle' is a mid-sized, floriferous selection with fuchsia pink, pom-pom flowers on strong stems. Its tennesseensis parentage helps this cultivar to be longer lived.

Grower Information

For strong, multi-stemmed, finished plants, plant our vernalized plugs after March 15 once the plugs have broken dormancy and are ready to grow. Daylength is key: 13+ hours of daylight is a necessity when finishing Echinacea.

If planting the summer prior to sale, start early enough to obtain complete rooting before the beginning of fall. Ease up on fertility in early fall to allow plants to go naturally dormant. Clean up the foliage only after plants are completely dormant. Avoid excessive moisture and temperature fluctuations during winter.
