Seth Reed
Sales & Marketing Manager

Darwin Perennials' re-launch of the Echinacea Double Scoop series is catching  eyes industry-wide. These Deluxe new intros have a tremendous flower count on each plant, a uniform in habit, and are very reliable as first-year flowering perennials. Echinacea Double Scoop Deluxe are from the same breeder as our top-performing Sombrero series — so you know you're getting great plants.

The Deluxe varieties available for 2024 are Orangeberry, Raspberry, Strawberry and Watermelon. They've won acclaim with growers, at university trials, and with retailers, winning Retailer's Choice Awards at Farwest and Cultivate'23.

The increased branching, flower count, and flower form are big improvements over the original Double Scoops. Great work by the breeders at Darwin Perennials and Pan American Seed. Thanks to the Ball Seed suppliers for developing the liners from tissue culture on this great new introduction for the North American Growers!
