Take a look at this brilliant new echinacea, called ‘Coral Reef’, due out in the shops in February. Its long-lasting double anemone-like flowers are produced atop 75cm high stalks, making it an excellent cut flower. Echinaceas are perennials, but they usually die down in winter in cooler regions. They aren’t too fussed about fertility or water, although while they’re getting established it’s a good idea to provide both. Look out for ‘Coral Reef’ in garden centres nationwide.
