Echinacea purpurea ‘Vintage Wine’
Native to the prairies and open woodlands of the eastern and central regions of North America, Echinacea species attract butterflies, provide seed for birds, and make beautiful floral arrangements. The plants typically grow two to four feet tall, with erect stems supporting large, bright blooms that provide a long-lasting display of color throughout the summer.
Clusters of Echinacea purpurea ‘Vintage Wine’ can be found on the High Line between Gansevoort Street and West 17th Street. This plant blooms throughout the summer, generally from May – October. After its flowering period ends in the fall, the stalks and seed heads provide visual interest throughout the year.
