Buy This: Echinacea 'Blueberry Pie'

By Clint Brown (clintbrown) on April 1, 2010

Terra Nova Nurseries, Inc. surprised everyone last year with Echinacea 'Tomato Soup'. This year they are back with the first ever blue Echinacea called 'Blueberry Pie'. This new Echinacea was created in a lab by combining genes from a Petunia of unknown origin and Echinacea 'Ruby Giant' to create something never seen before in the plant world...a blue Echinacea!

These plants grow just like the standard Echinaceas without any special requirements. They do require good drainage, however. Unlike other new Echinacea cultivars, these will return after winter is over! They are also2010-04-01/clintbrown/b40679 fragrant with hints of Blue Rose, Blueberry and a touch of Citrus. Echinacea 'Blueberry Pie' does not fade in the heat like other Echinacea cultivars.

Excellent companion plants are the elusive Blue Rose and Perennial Petunias. This cultivar is also resistant to Aster Yellows and is the first Echinacea that can claim such disease resistance. This is the Knockout Rose of the Echinacea world!

Please order early as supplies are very limited. The lab technicians are working over-time to get these made, but as usual, delays can be expected. Due to the high demand and low supply, the cost per plant is currently $99.99. The minimum order is 100. You can place your order by clicking here.
