Echinacea Flame Thrower coneflower. With rays of blazing yellow-orange and a central cone of deep burnt amber, the vibrant colors of this fragrant Coneflower live up to its name. 'Flame Thrower' is an excellent choice for the middle of the border, blooming all summer long with a well-branched habit to complete the package. Love these!!
