(syn: Echinacea CBG Cone3) This dazzling coneflower from the breakthrough breeding work of Dr. Jim Ault of the Chicago Botanic Garden created yet another color in echinaceas. Echinacea 'Mango Meadowbrite' is topped with 3" wide, mango-colored (RHS 21A), fragrant flower heads surrounding a slightly darker orange central cone. Actually, the color is closer to orange-mustard, but that doesn't sound quite as appealing. This is a stunning plant in flower that is sure to stand out in the garden. It was named Echinacea 'CBG Cone3', which is an invalid cultivar name, so we renamed it Echinacea 'Mango Meadowbrite'.
