Rainbow Marcella flowers open tangerine-orange, then blush lavender, creating a sherbet-like swirl of soft color. These single blooms are large and showy, lasting a long time on the plant or in the vase. Echinacea has big, bright flowers that appear from late June until frost. Coneflowers thrive in average soils or hot, dry conditions and shrug off cold. Blooms last well, cut or dried, and the seeds in the large cone at the heart of the flower head provide nourishment for birds.
