Echinaceas have grown in popularity in recent years, thanks to the new trend for prairie-style planting. They're easy to grow as they tolerate most soils, and their sturdy nature means that staking is unnecessary.

Echinacea 'Irresistable' bears beautiful upward-facing, flat, double apricot-pink flowers from June to September. Its compact habit makes it suitable for growing in pots and containers, or planted in drifts through the centre of the border. It makes an excellent cut flower.
