Echinacea 'Hot Papaya' (coneflower) has highly fragrant, 3", spicy red-orange flowers bloom with a papaya orange halo in the pom-pom center. This is a tall Echinacea. The glowing orange flowers have terrific visual impact from quite a distance, especially when planted in groups. Though it is a hybrid of two species, ‘Hot Papaya’ strongly exhibits the traits of E. purpurea in foliage and habit. The plant forms a strong, sturdy clump with robust, deep green foliage and thick stems with maroon markings. Echinacea are a magnet for butterflies and pollinators.
