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.
