Love echinacea and russian sage together! Purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) in the foreground, Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) in the middle, and Bee Balm (Monarda didyma) in the background. A GREAT COMBINATION!
Echinacea 'Burgundy Fireworks' has deep beet-red ray flowers, which are not only upturned like its E. tennesseensis ancestor, but are individually fused into quills. No other coneflower has this combination of traits!
