Echinacea ‘TNECHKR’ (KISMET® Raspberry)

3 Photos


Summary

Echinacea ‘TNECHKR’, also known by the trade name KISMET® Raspberry, is one of several Terra Nova Nurseries introductions that were evaluated in this trial. KISMET® Raspberry was a standout in the trial thanks to its strong vigor, saturated color, and oversized blooms. The glowing raspberry-pink petals are at their peak in early July and, while comparable to the blooms of Echinacea ‘Sensation Pink’ and Echinacea ‘Purple Emperor’, KISMET® Raspberry maintains the slightest floral edge over these close competitors because of the sheer vibrancy of its blooms. KISMET® Raspberry hybrid coneflower has an attractive and consistent 3′ by 3′ habit, similar to that of Echinacea purpurea ‘Pica Bella’.
