The Coneflower Sunrise, 'Echinacea purpurea', is an easy to grow flower that produces beautiful, rich yellow blooms that slowly mature to a pale shade of lemon. These plants have a wonderful eye appeal!
‘Sunrise’ have yellow daisy-like flowers and display centers that start out green and turn gold.
Blooming 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 ‘Sunrise’ stands 30-35” high with a plant spread of 18”. 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. ‘Sunrise’ is great choice for cut flowers, and it adds a wilderness look to your garden.
Not only is it a prized perennial for many gardeners, but it is also said to be a potent medicine. Echinacea is said to increase immune function and reduce the effects of colds and flu.
For a fantastic look, combine ‘Sunrise’ with Leucanthemum ‘Becky Daisy’ or in cottage gardens. It is a definite must!
