    The Biggest, Brightest Pink Coneflower


    The Sundown Coneflower is become so popular this year because...
    • it is bred to have the biggest coneflowers (up to four inches!)
    • low-maintenance flowers are easy to grow
    • looks great when potted up around patios!

    A Stunning Centerpiece
    Enjoy a showy, fragrant and unique centerpiece to your flower bed that will have your neighbors stopping and staring. The Sundown Echinacea is a cultivar, part of the Big Sky series, developed specifically for its large (up to 4 inch) blooms and tall stems. Enjoy these giant blooms all summer and into early fall.

    Eye-catching Color
    It's the unique color of the Sundown Echinacea that catches everyone's attention. The button-shaped cone is a reddish, cinnamon-brown color and it's surrounded by downward-pointing petals of a deep burnt-orange color. You get rich, orange color on top of a strong stem.

    Easy To Look After
    It will thrive in most areas of your yard: it's tolerant of poor soil, though it does prefer moist, well-drained conditions, and can survive drought, humidity and heat. Deadheading the old blooms is optional, but if you have the time to do this it will encourage new growth. Water the plants occasionally, and that's all the ongoing maintenance that they need.

    Much More Than Just Flowers
    As stunning as it is, the Sundown Echinacea provides more than just colorful interest in your garden. The flowers are great for cutting and taking indoors, though you may want to use just a few in a flower arrangement to highlight their uniqueness. The Sundown's fragrance attracts birds and butterflies, adding to the wildlife in your garden, but it is resistant to deer. If you leave the flower heads on the stems in the fall, birds will return to harvest the seeds.
