Echinacea ‘Meringue’ is a petite new introduction in the Cone-fections series that comes to us from The Netherlands. Add a little evening glow to your garden. Nicely compact for smaller spaces and an excellent candidate for front row placement. Arie Blom has again created a densely branched Echinacea that is fully double and extremely floriferous. Reported to be in full flower from July through September, Meringue has great garden merit.
Measuring 18″-20″ high and wide at maturity, Meringue is a Coneflower everyone needs in their collection. Anything bred by Arie will continue to delight you for weeks on end. Buds open to apple-green disc flowers that elongate as they age and develop into a fully double cream petaled cone skirted with bright white petals. Clean creamy white when fully open, then fading to resemble Coconut Lime.
Sweet ‘n low takes the cake.
