Terra Nova Nurseries introduced a 2012 Sneak Peek variety introduction for growers on Aug. 22, 2012. Echinacea ‘Chiquita’ is a part of the company’s Prairie Pixies Series.
Echinacea 'Chiquita' has large banana-colored blooms and an upright habit. Only 14 inches tall at maturity, the clean deep green foliage covers this plant top to bottom. ‘Chiquita’ is an ideal choice for mixed containers, mass plantings and front of the border. This fragrant echinacea blooms from July to September and is deer-resistant, drought-tolerant and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
