Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan' bears white, daisy-like flowers with drooping petals and a large, orange-green centre, on rigid stems. It's shorter than many other echinacea varieties, making it perfect for growing in containers or the middle of the herbaceous border. It has a long flowering season and is extremely attractive to pollinators.
For best results grow Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan' in fertile, well-draned soil in full sun. It's ideal for growing in bold drifts in a mixed border, or with low-growing grasses in a prairie-style planting scheme.

I brought 4 echinacea white swan from a local Wilko store about 2 years ago costing about £1 a plant They were bare rooted so I potted them up in a well drained compost mix and left them over the summer and winter months . This was so that they built up a good root system before planting out in the following spring. They flowered beautiful from late June untill the late autumn.A beautiful cream turning to white petal and the bees loved them .To be honest, I have brought plants from Wilkos and had only varied success, but these plants are a great testament that you don't have to buy expensive to get good , quality plants
