(aka: Echinacea 'Balscandin') Echinacea 'Double Scoop Mandarin' is the latest in the well-performing Double Scoop series of coneflowers from Ball Seed. In mid-June (NC), the double flowers, which top the sturdy 20" tall stems, emerge peachy orange and age to rosy pink. We think you'll really like this in a well-drained part of your sunny garden.
We recommend cutting your coneflowers to the ground soon after flowers fade to ensure a second round of blooms before frost.Echinaceas will die to the ground after a hard freeze, but there generally isn't any need to remove the old foliage.
Like all coneflowers, a soil that doesn't remain waterlogged in the key to success. Echinaceas love full sun, so we recommend 4 or more hours a day for best flowering.
As a general rule, the double flowered coneflowers, like Echinacea 'Double Scoop Mandarin', aren't going to serve as nectar sources for bumblebees like the single forms do.
