The Coneflower Sundown, Echinacea Big Sky™ 'Sundown' (PP17,659), is another hybrid coneflower in the Big Sky™ series.  The flowers start out being fluorescent rose pink while buds are expanding, then change to bright rose-orange.  They eventually fade to soft purple pink.  These are very fragrant, daisy-like flowers!

The ‘Sundown’ blooms from June to September and is a major attractor to butterflies and bees and is a must for any perennial gardens.

The stunning flowers of 'Sundown' occur on strong stems and long dark green stems with dark green foliage.

For best results, plant in full sun in a well drained area. Cone Flowers are known for their large flower heads that turn to seed in the fall.

Not only is it a prized perennial for many gardeners, but also a potent medicine.  It has been reported that coneflowers increase immune function and reduces the effects of cold and flu.

'Sundown' is a great choice for cut flowers, adding a wilderness look to your garden.

This coneflower is literally covered in masses of blooms.  The vibrancy of this unusual color is quite stunning and makes a grand addition to a sunny garden area!
