Product Details

Product Details

Butterflies and other beneficial pollinators will visit your garden when Purple Coneflowers and Blazing Star begin to bloom. These drought-resistant, native perennials self sow modestly and spread about in a charming, cottage-garden way in full sun and average soil.

Our Butterfly Buffet Collection includes 1 each of Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus' and 'White Swan,' plus 3 Liatris spicata 'Floristan White.' The Coneflowers may even cross (thanks to the pollinators) and produce offspring with light pink flowers. 5 plants total. Covers about 7 sq ft.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Sorry this collection is out of stock. Bought last year and it bloomed beautifully all summer. Want more!

Lovely collection

A viewer from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley

I purchased this collection last year and it bloomed magnificently all summer covered in bees and butterflies and adding color and form to the garden. Now, at summer's end, birds are consuming the many seeds purposely left as the flowers faded. My intention today was to buy another collection (or two) but it is sold out. I'm sorry i wasn't quicker!
