Common Name: Coneflower
Bloom Time: Summer to Fall
Features: Attracts Butterflies & Hummingbirds. Deer Resistant.
The variety PRAIRIE SPLENDOR™ has been popular due to its earlier bloom time and extended blooming performance. It now comes in a smaller more compact size – Rose Compact. Rose pink flowers.
Praised for their large, daisy-like flowers which appear from midsummer thru fall, after many other perennials have finished blooming, Coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. If deadheaded, the bloom cycle will be extended. However, some spent blooms should be left on the plants in fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
Sun: Full Sun to Part Shade
Water: Dry to Medium
Easily grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. This is an adaptable plant that is tolerant of drought, heat, humidity and poor soil. Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years). Plants usually rebloom without deadheading, however prompt removal of spent flowers encourages continued bloom and improves general appearance.
