And now, for something completely different...I'm quickly wearing out that phrase. Echinacea 'Sparkler' is a truly unique sport of E. purpurea 'Ruby Giant' that forms a nice, dwarf, compact clump to only 26" tall x 18" wide. The green leaves emerge frosted white and hold this pattern until very hot weather arrives. Each clump is topped with 26" tall flower spikes of 4" wide fragrant, light-pink flowers. If you enjoy plants with variegation, this one's for you.
