The BEST Double Coneflower in a Unique Cranberry Rose!
• Gorgeous Pompoms of Cranberry Rose that Doesn’t Fade!
• Up to 100 Flowers on Each Plant!
• Blooms for THREE Months or More!
• Very Easy to Grow, Despite Less-Than-Ideal Conditions!
This Plant Literally Covers Itself in Blooms!
Not only are these blooms large and voluptuously double, they are colored a delicious cranberry rose that is never before seen in an Echinacea! And the color stays rich until the blooms are done. The compact plants grow to about two feet tall, and bear so many branches that they literally cover themselves in these gorgeous blooms – absolutely stunning when seen in a mass planting! Such a grouping will attract so many butterflies that it creates a butterfly garden all by itself! Plus, if you leave the cones on the plant at the end of the season, songbirds will forage on the seeds in fall and winter. Despite wind or rain, the strong stems hold the flowers upright above attractive, clean green foliage. One of our very favorite plants!
It’ll Give You Months of Bright Color!
Not only do the blooms keep their bright color without fading, they also keep coming over an exceptionally long time. They will open over the whole summer without deadheading, and even into fall, if you remove spent blooms.
One of the Easiest plants You Can Grow, and Great for Wildlife!
Drought tolerant, it thrives despite heat, humidity and even poor soil, including clay or shallow, rocky soil! Unlike many older Coneflowers, this beauty is long-lived, especially if it likes its location. Fortunately, deer and rabbits do not find it attractive.
Plant in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil. Let it dry a little between waterings. Be sure the location is well-drained, especially in the winter. If you have clay soil, it helps to add plenty of compost and organic matter to the soil when you plant, and use a raised bed. Other than that, just sit back and enjoy the show!
