Echinacea ‘Glowing Dream’

3 Photos


Echinacea ‘Glowing Dream’ is a Terra Nova Nurseries hybrid that has incredible tropical pink blooms. A profusion of luminous flowers is held well above the foliage for six weeks in mid-June to mid-July, establishing ‘Glowing Dream’ as one of the longest blooming non-double Echinacea in our trial. This cultivar is most similar in form and color to ‘Sensation Pink’, although ‘Glowing Dream’ lacks the contrasting dark stems of the former cultivar. Like ‘Sensation Pink,’ ‘Glowing Dream’ was also one of the most visited coneflowers in our pollinator study.
