Plant of the Week

Pow Wow Wildberry Echinacea

Pow Wow Wildberry Echinacea is an example of a very pretty fire wise plant.  This ruby Pow Wow Wildberrytoned beauty produces a floriferous flurry of huge 4” raspberry-rose-colored flowers with dark centers.  Very difficult to ignite in a wildfire, this outstanding new variety is the winner of the acclaimed AAS garden award. Winning the ribbon “by the skin of her petals” for a continual bloom right through the summer heat and into fall, this full-bodied, well-branching 20″ plant requires little deadheading or upkeep. This is one of the plants that make it possible to have a pretty fire-wise garden that blooms summer through fall.
