echinacea southern belle

hi. I love the look of Echinacea southern belle but because I want to attract pollinators to the garden I've listened to advice and been planting mostly single-leaved flowers and avoiding doubles. can anyone tell me if this plant attracts lots of interest from pollinators or do they mostly avoid it? thanks.


  • I find my Echinacea hybrids flower very poorly, get decimated by slugs or don't survive winter at all. I'd always recommend Echinacea purpurea above the hybrids as it flowers prolifically and always survives the slugs. I'm sure there are others who will have had great success with hybrids.
