This Dan Heims selection of the US native Echinacea purpurea is from the European garden of the son of Magnus Nielson (Echinacea 'Magnus'). This clump was selected from the parent stock for the seed strain Echinacea 'Rubinsturn'. One particularly nice plant was selected for vegetative propagation...all offspring are now identical. Echinacea 'Ruby Giant' boasts large 5-7" wide flowers of pure bright clear pink, each with upcurved petal tips. Did I mention the flowers are delightfully fragrant and attract hummingbirds? This is truly a stunning selection that is a must for every border!
