According to the Dutch hybridizer Marco van Noort, 'Delicious Candy' is his best Echinacea in 5 years! The colour on this double coneflower is practically fluorescent, with glowing fuchsia pink flowers. The single ray petals are held horizontally underneath the large pom-pom blooms.
In addition to its beautiful flowers, this coneflower also has attractive dark green leaves and dark stems on compact plants.
Praised for their cheerful brightly coloured flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
