Echinacea Kismet® White ('TNECHKW' PPAF)

Coneflower

Years of intense breeding at Terra Nova Nurseries has resulted in this series of short coneflowers with large crowns that fill out 1-gal containers fully and deliver a reliable garden performance every year. Fragrant, large flowers with horizontally held petals are produced abundantly starting early in the season and continuing all season. This variety bears snow white flowers with a greenish gold cone. Nativar.

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.
