Coneflower - Purple
The Echinacea ‘Purple Coneflower’, Echinacea purpurea, is an easy to grow flower that produces beautiful lavender to purple daisy-like flowers.
Coneflowers produce large, fragrant flowers that bloom from July to October and a major attractor to butterflies and bees and deer resistant, it is a must for any perennial gardens.
With its dark green foliage, Echinacea ‘Purple Coneflower’ stands 3’ high with a plant spread of 18-24”. For best results, plant in full sun in a well-drained area.
Echinacea is known for its large flower heads that turn to seed in the fall. It is a great choice for cut flowers.
These Virgin coneflowers can be used as accent plants or in mixed borders, open woodlands, and mass plantings.
If you leave the coneflower seed heads on the plant at the end of the season, they will provide winter interest and food for native songbirds.
