"Echinacea 'Ruby Star' is a slightly shorter plant with large flat topped flowers that are a deeper purple pink, almost ruby red, than most others. An improvement over 'Magnus' having stronger, more intense, carmine-red flowers. This is probably the best pupurea form on the market." -- North Creek Nurseries
Echinacea purpurea 'Ruby Star' was introduced by Jelitto Perennial Seeds, who also introduced Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus'.
