Echinacea ‘Sensation Pink’

3 Photos


Summary

A product of the breeding efforts of Marco van Noort in the Netherlands, Echinacea ‘Sensation Pink’ produced one of the most vibrant displays in our trial. Intense, neon-pink flowers are held on dark stems that further accentuate their otherworldly floral color. In contrast to the exuberant blooms, ‘Sensation Pink’ manifests a restrained and more compact habit relative to its wild counterparts. While ‘Sensation Pink’ is undoubtedly a horticultural standout, it proved to have substantial ecological value as well. In fact, this cultivar was one of the five most pollinator-visited Echinacea in the trial. This is one truly sensational plant!
