Echinacea purpurea 'Kim's Knee-High' (Asteraceae)
(ek-in-AY-see-a pur-PUR-ree-a)
Compact Purple Coneflower

A 1999 Niche Gardens/Sunny Border Introduction. Our Compact Purple Coneflower is as petite and lovely as its namesake, Niche founder Kim Hawks. She developed this short coneflower over years of selection, and 'Kim's Knee High' has wowed gardeners world-wide ever since. Its brilliant pink flowers, incredibly long season of bloom and sturdy height keep Niche customers coming back for more. Typically topping out a foot shorter than the species; wonderful for massing in sunny borders or in containers.
