Summary

PUFF® Vanilla coneflower is a compact double-flowered hybrid developed by Terra Nova Nursery in Oregon.  The flowers of this cultivar are tidy and well-formed with distinct white ray petals surrounding a mound of yellow-orange petals occupying the central cone.  An effective floral display lasts for an impressive eight weeks, from the middle of June through early August.  Despite the extended season of horticultural interest, PUFF® Vanilla was one of the least frequented coneflowers by pollinators in our trial receiving an average of six visits in 2018 and 2019.
