Our passion for Coneflowers is no secret. This indulgence is truly eye-popping: flamingo-pink double cones with crested centers outlined by a ring of light pink ray florets. Plants are compact with sturdy stems that are multibranched to carry more oversize blooms. PPAF
Echinacea, a North American genus in the Daisy family, has big, bright flowers that appear from late June until frost. Coneflowers thrive in average soils or hot, dry conditions and shrug off cold. Blooms last well, cut or dried, and the seeds in the large cone at the heart of the flower head provide nourishment for birds. Coneflowers are equally at home in formal borders or cottage gardens. Deer resistant. For more information on growing and care, click on Growing Guide.
