(aka: Echinacea 'Balscanery') We have found the Double Scoop series of coneflowers to be good performers in our heat and humidity trials. Echinacea 'Double Scoop Cranberry', a 2014 introduction from the breeders at Ball Seed, is an offspring of their earlier introduction, Echinacea 'Double Scoop Orangeberry'. Up to six, 16" stalks arise from the basal foliage, topped, starting for us in mid June, with lovely double flowers of a cranberry/peach color. As with all echinaceas, establish them in the garden before fall, and remove the first set of flowers, which allows the plant to develop a large enough crown of vegetative growth to survive the winter.
