Echinacea ‘TNECHKIO’ (KISMET® Intense Orange)

3 Photos


From Terra Nova’s KISMET® Series, Echinacea KISMET® Intense Orange features the same breeding strategies as Echinacea KISMET® Raspberry and is similarly advertised to have increased numbers of flowers and greater garden adaptability. This coneflower was often compared to Echinacea ‘Santa Fe’ and Echinacea ‘Balsomcor’ (SOMBRERO® Hot Coral) due to similarities in habit and flower color and, like ‘Santa Fe’, it was also voted a top five favorite by visitors. KISMET® Intense Orange coneflower produced some of the most saturated red-orange flowers in our trial that eventually faded to handsome apricot tones in late summer.
