Doppelgänger offers a spectacular summer display of double-decker cone flowers. Above the reflexed rosy purple petals, a second flower emerges atop the vivid orange central cone. This extraordinary double flower forms reliably as the plant matures (by the second year). Flower arrangers prize this unusual perennial for its unique structure and lively color. The name means “double walker” and refers to the psychological shadow self that partners each being. A sturdy sun lover, this 30″ plant thrives in natural gardens, beds and borders and makes a curious cut flower. Long lived and easy to grow, Doppelgänger is hardy to Zone 3.
Each plant in our Plant Curiosities category is labeled with our unique, patented, Windowpane label.
