Cone Flower 'White Swan'(Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan')Herb in 1L Pot

Echinacea 'White Swan' is a perennial of upright growth it is slightly shorter than the purple versions of the species at approx 1m in height . A white variety of the much loved “Purple Coneflower”. With large, with daisy-like white flowers around a burnished yellow orange cone.  As with all Echinacea's it is native to North America it is happy in full-sun to part shade. Although it takes a few years to establish it is very hardy and tolerant of drier soil conditions. The Cone Flower is very attractive to butterflies and bees and makes an extremely attractive cut flower. It is a beautiful perennial plant  and is perfect for the summer flower border, prairie style planting or the dry garden. It is drought tolerant, although water in the first year until established and prefers full sun and a free-draining hummus rich soil. If you cut back the stems as the flowers fade it can encourage a second flush of flowers or if you prefer they can be left in place as they can look attractive as dried seed heads.
