Details

Huge, pure white, wonderfully fragrant blooms bobbing atop hardy native plants that bloom freely over a very long season -- is there a simpler or more beautiful plant for the garden than this coneflower? White Swan is marvelously floriferous, and the scent evokes a summer day in the country. The pure white blooms are 4 to 5 inches wide, their hue accentuated by the large, knoblike golden-brown cones, which bring in the butterflies and bees and, after the very long bloom season has passed, are superb for drying and using in everlasting arrangements!
