Echinacea are fantastic pollinator plants calling bees and butterflies and are nectar-rich pollen resources for native species and beneficial pollinators. These long-lasting blossoms usually rebloom without deadheading, but if spent flowers are removed, this procedure will encourage continued beautiful blooms and improve general appearance.

Planting and Application:

Echinacea is known for its large flower heads that turn to seeds in the fall. It is a great choice for cut flowers, and it adds an upscale wilderness look to your garden. Pot up on large planters or add to garden beds and borders, pollinator gardens and unique cottage gardens. Not only is it a prized perennial for many gardeners, but it is also said to be potent medicine!

This Coneflower keeps coming all summer on tall plants with excellent branching. It is also deer resistant. If you leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall their seeds provide winter food for birds! You can enjoy the dried seed heads as well because they will provide architectural interest in the winter.
