Echinacea ‘Rainbow Marcela’ is a standout in a field of champions! ‘Rainbow Marcela’s’ has beautiful coral-pink petals that turn a soft, raspberry pink around the center cone. These hardy Coneflowers are compact, heavy bloomers, with long-lasting flowers that remain colorful until the first frost.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. This is an adaptable plant that is tolerant of drought, heat, humidity and poor soil. Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years). Plants rebloom well without deadheading, however prompt removal of spent flowers encourages continued bloom and improves general appearance.  Allow some seedheads to remain if you want the plants to reseed and for the birds.
