'Aloha', but not from Hawaii (Echinaceas)!

'Aloha' Echinacea!  This beautifully fragrant echinacea is a star performer in the landscape.  Masses of elegant yellow flowers with an orange cone shine brightly atop tall stems & rich green foliage which make them perfect for fresh bouquets. The flowers lighten to soft yellow as they age.   A welcoming and elegant plant that greets you with its fragrance and beauty. Use en mass for the border, in a mixed bed, or for a cut flower! Butterflies and songbirds delight in their sweet nectar all season.  Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plant in the Fall because their seeds provide Winter food for Finches & other birds.  The dried seeds also provide architectural interest in the winter!
