    Long Blooming, Drought Tolerant

    The flowers are absolutely the color of a ripe cantaloupe! Echinacea SUPREME 'Cantaloupe' is just as delicious as its name. This delightful semi double Coneflower resembles a gerbera daisy in the early stages. As SUPREME 'Cantaloupe' begins to open a dark brown eye is surrounded by the ripe cantaloupe orange petals. As the flower matures, the pom pom center turns orange surrounded by a flurry of petals

    • This cone flower is so lovely. The blooms look downright delicious. This is my 3rd year and the plant has not filled out. It has very sparse foliage and only has maybe 3 or 4 blooms at a time. I probably would not repurchase due to the sparseness but I do LOVE the blooms.
