Echinacea purpurea ‘Baby Swan White’ is a compact, white-flowered cultivar of the typically purple-flowered Echinacea purpurea. Flowers are white with drooping petals and the cone changes from green to golden brown late season. The 'Baby Swan White' coneflower cultivar is true to seed, meaning it is easily propagated, but that there will also be some variation to its look when allowed to spread. 'Baby Swan White' blooms from early summer to fall, but fall flowers will fare better when earlier season flowers are deadheaded. 

Echinacea purpurea ‘Baby Swan White’ grows aproximately 2-3 feet tall, though usually closer to 2', and spreads to 18-24" wide; spread can be affected by the plant's tendency to freely self-seed over time, but this can be limited by deadheading. White blooms attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators, and dried flower heads, if left intact, will attract birds with a heavy cache of seed. Plants are drought and deer tolerant and make for excellent, long-lasting cut flowers. Just like its parent species, ‘Baby Swan White’ can be propagated by division in spring or fall or by root cuttings from late fall to early winter.

With a low to medium height and showy, bright white flowers, the ‘Baby Swan White’ coneflower cultivar is the perfect choice for perennial borders, prairies, and cottage gardens, but works great for pollinator gardens and forest edge plantings too! This cultivar earned a 4.2 out of 5 points in Mt. Cuba Center's Trial Gardens (Honorable Mention).
