Large 3-4 inch Blooms – and Lots of Them!
This new Coneflower was so outstanding, it received the All-America Award for excellence! It is such a heavy bloomer, and has such a nice, neat habit it really caught the eyes of the judges all over the country. The plant is exceptionally well-branched, which means it bears a lot of blooms – the more branches, the more blooms! It starts two weeks before other Coneflowers, and it keeps going from early summer until early fall, with a few intrepid blooms continuing on until frost. The hold their color, too, staying bright and attractive, rather than taking on the dusty tones of most aging Coneflower blooms.
Sturdy, Upright Plants Need No Help to Stay Neat!
Growing to 20-24 inches tall and 12-18 inches wide, this plant is strong enough to stay upright and neat in the garden without the help of staking. And, unlike most perennials, it needs no deadheading to keep up its prodigious bloom production!
Attracts All Kinds of Wildlife!
A top butterfly attractor! Hummingbirds will visit, too, and if you leave the cones on the plant, songbirds will forage on the seeds in fall and winter. Fortunately, deer and rabbits do not find it attractive.
One of the Easiest plants You Can Grow!
Drought tolerant, it thrives despite heat, humidity and even poor soil, including clay or shallow, rocky soil! It does need good drainage, but that comes with being drought tolerant. A single plant is beautiful, but a group of at least 3 makes an impressive show, and a larger mass planting will knock your socks off!
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. Other than that, just sit back and enjoy the show!
