Description

Hi! I am a Purple Coneflower, and I am best known for my rapid growth speed, sweet smelling flowers and striking purple color - I am the perfect plant to add some quick color to your yard, and brighten up any garden. Not only am I beautiful and sweet smelling, I stay in bloom until the mid fall, adding a unique splash of color to an autumn garden. I am low maintenance and extremely easy to grow in any soil, drought tolerant, and only require a bit of spring clean up before I resume my growing season in the summer. I am happiest, healthiest and most beautiful when I am planted with lots of my friends in groupings, and given lots of sun to bathe in all day.

Highlights

  • Bright and vibrant large orange to red coneflowers that attract pollinators like bees, butterflies, and birds.
  • Easy to grow and low maintenance, it is ideal for gardens, borders, and mass plantings.
  • Drought and heat tolerant, and can withstand a wide range of soil conditions, as long as it is well-drained.

Care Guide

  • Watering: During the growing season, it is best to water the plant regularly, making sure that the soil stays moist but not waterlogged. A good rule of thumb is to water about once a week, or as needed based on the soil moisture level.
  • Maintenance: Deadhead spent flowers regularly to promote continued blooming and to prevent self-seeding. Divide the clumps in spring or fall every few years to maintain their vigor.
  • Pruning: Prune back the stems of the coneflower to about 1 to 2 inches from the ground in late winter or early spring. This will promote bushier growth and encourage more flowers.
  • (Optional) Fertilizing: Fertilize the coneflower in spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer, following the label instructions.
