Summary

Rainbow Marcella coneflower is part of the Butterfly™ series introduced by the Dutch breeder Arie Blom at AB-Cultivars. The flowers are interesting; petals are deep pink near the cone and transition to tangerine near the tip. The plants tended to splay open, and also were not particularly vigorous.
