Sunseekers is a coneflower series bred by Innoflora BV and marketed by Gootjes AllPlant BV from the Netherlands. The first part consists of varieties whose patent names begin with Apecss-, and comprises of plants with single flowers of remarkably rich colours. While the second part of the series with patent names beginning with Ipecss- breaks through with a completely new and innovative design of semi-double flowers which recall gerbera and dahlia rather than a coneflower. The first and hugely successful variety was Sunseekers Salmon and was awarded Gold Medal by KVBC at Plantarium Exhibition 2018.

White Perfection is a sequel of the new Sunseekers Ipecss- series following the success of Sunseekers Salmon. It produces semi-double flowers with creamy white ray florets with lime green hues, and rather flat central discs whose disc florets are rich green with yellow tips as they mature. They hide plenty of nectar for butterflies, bumble bees as well as bees. Flowering begins later, usually in late July or early August but lasts longer – until the last sunny and warm days of autumn. Longevity of individual flowers is exceptional, too – almost 3 weeks. Plants are compact but have exceptional vigour and dense habit. Deadhead spent flowers regularly and feed the plants every two weeks during summer. Leaves are healthy, deep green, and broadly lanceolate.

The plant is usually trouble-free and resistant, just be careful if slugs are present in your garden. Since coneflowers emerge quite late, often when slugs are already in their lethal strength, they could gobble up newly emerging foliage totally and thus destroy the plant before it even comes out.

Coneflower will tolerate almost any soil type but boggy. It loves full sun. It is suitable for mixed borders with perennials or can be used as a flowering feature among low shrubs and conifers, and looks lovely when planted in a mass in a container on patios and balconies. Fully hardy to min -34°C (USDA zone 4).
