Echinacea purpurea Virgin PP18684 (Virgin Coneflower) An introduction by Lurie Garden plantsman, Piet Oudolf. ’Virgin‘was the result of crossing multiple unnamed E. purpurea selections and is noted as a superior selection when compared to older white E. purpurea selections. Flowers of ‘Virgin‘ are striking–comprised of a double-row of white rays set perpendicular to the stem and surrounding a domed green to green-yellow center cone.
