Ruby Giant Coneflower
Giant 7" Rubies!
Coneflower Ruby Giant, Echinacea purpurea 'Ruby Giant', boasts absolutely huge 7" flowers with petals that remain flat and do not droop like other common Echinacea.
Combined with its sweet fragrance and rich rose-red color, the butterflies and hummingbirds love ‘Rudy Giant’. The colorful blooms tower high above lush mounds of dark green foliage! When done flowering, the huge cones look wonderful in dried flower arrangements.
The dead flower stems will remain erect well into the winter and, if flower heads are not removed, are often visited by goldfinches and other birds to feed on the seed.
For best results, plant 'Ruby Giant' 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, 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, reduce the effects of colds and flu, and fight off viral, bacterial and fungal infections.
With its long summer to fall bloom period, ‘Ruby Giant’ will make a bold and bright addition to any sunny garden!
