From Tony's college classmate, Kim Hawks, former owner of Niche Gardens, comes this classic dwarf selection of the wonderful native purple coneflower. The compact Echinacea 'Kim's Knee High' was the first coneflower to be vegetatively propagated, ensuring that every plant is identical...no seed-grown variation as long as you remove the old seed heads. Starting in mid-June (NC), each flower head has rigidly reflexed, rosy-pink petals that give a truly unique look to Kim's Knee High coneflower. Purple coneflower is extremely drought-tolerant, although it does favor improved garden conditions. Plant a drift, sit back with drink in hand, and wait for the hummingbirds and butterflies!
