Echinacea After Midnight™ ('Emily Saul') PP18768   

This new, very distinctive, dwarf cultivar from the popular Big Sky™ Series has fragrant, dark magenta purple flowers with a black-red cone. Wide, overlapping flower petals give the blossoms a full look atop dramatic black stems, just 1' tall, with blue-green foliage. Well branched, compact and vigorous. Perfect for containers or the front of the flower border. A result of crosses between E. purpurea and E. paradoxa, it has inherited the dominant characteristics of E. purpurea, but with fuller, toothed leaves and wider petals.
