“Cheyenne Spirit” Name Of Award-​​Winning Flower

Echinacea ‘Cheyenne Spirit’AAS Flower Award Winner!

All-​​America Selections (AAS) is a non-​​profit organization founded in 1932 to test new flowers and vegetables for home gardening. They utilize a network of over 40 trials grounds across North America then publicity promote the best performers that are declared AAS Winners.
This stunning first-​​year flowering echinacea captures the spirit of the North American plains by producing a delightful mix of flower colors from rich purple, pink, red and orange tones to lighter yellows, creams and white. This wide range of flower colors on well branched, durable plants are sure to please the color preferences of any gardener. As an added bonus, ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ does not require a lot of water and offers a wide-​​range of uses from the perennial border, in a mass landscape planting, in a butterfly garden or as a cut flower.

The AAS judges and their trial garden visitors raved about the attractiveness of the flowers and the range of colors while appreciating its sturdiness and low water needs. Even during wind and rain, this compact plant does not topple over like many echinacea. The variety of intense, bright colors adds sparkle to the garden from mid-​​summer through fall. As an added bonus, this maintenance-​​free echinacea doesn’t need deadheading to provide summer long beauty.

Look for the Cheyenne Spirit to be planted on the grounds of the Botanic Gardens in 2013.
