Summertime Illusion Mix

Summertime Illusion Mix

Born to be wild! Be daring in your garden design by choosing a mix that is a wonderful blend of old and new. North American native coneflowers have been combined with exotic sea holly from central Europe. We hand selected this colorful mix of boldly hued echinacea and striking, blue sea holly to give customers the kind of easy-care, yet totally unique look they crave. An abundance of blooms erupts into full flower in the early days of summer and last all season long, producing a summertime garden full of bright, beautiful color. This is the perfect choice for borders, cut-flower bouquets and dried flower arrangements. Drought-tolerant and deer-resistant mixture attracts butterflies and other beneficial pollinators to the landscape.
