Echinacea 'Butterfly Kisses' Compact, erect, and covered with bright pink pompom flowers, 'Butterfly Kisses' deserves special space in your perennial border or container garden. The flowers are fragrant, measure 3 inches across, and are held like little umbrellas above the deep green foliage. If you love the pompom-type of coneflower, this new introduction deserves a try; it's a member of the Conefections series.
