The new and improved Prairie Splendor™ Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea 'Prairie Splendor') is a nice uniform version of the native perennial, with shorter growth and a 2-week earlier bloom time compared to other Coneflowers! The long petals and spikey centers add unique form and texture to the sun garden! No more leggy perennials, Prairie Splendor™ stays neat and tidy!

You'll love watching butterflies and wonderful goldfinch birds flit from flower to flower, and so will your friends and family. Hummingbirds and other beneficial pollinators will also visit your garden adding to the spectacular show! Feel free to cut the blooms and take them inside for flower arrangements, because Prairie Splendor™ will simply make more!

The coarse green foliage looks great until fall and the spikey raised seedheads look great in dried arrangements, as winter interest, and songbirds adore the seeds for a fall or winter treat! Prairie Splendor™ Coneflowers are rugged, low-maintenance native perennial cultivars that come back year after year and produce long-lasting blooms all summer long!

Planting and Application:

Coneflowers are must-haves for cut flower and pollinator gardens, native, wildflower, and prairie gardens, Rock gardens, and perennial borders! It creates a fantastic colorful backdrop to smaller plants and groundcovers until frost! With their well-branched stems, a mass planting of these long-blooming plants will become a fabulous focal point! Use these plants in xeric and fire-wise landscaping designs!

Prairie Splendor™ has a special shade of pinkish-purple that works beautifully in just about any color garden palette or type of pot! Working well in both formal and informal settings! They're even easy enough to grow in drifts! Fill a wide, open area with a mass planting of these easy-peasy herbaceous perennials. Space them 12 inches apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Coneflower needs plenty of sunshine - at least 6 hours of full sun a day. Don't plant this perennial in low-lying areas that collect water because they need well-drained soil. And although they will be relatively drought tolerant, you'll get more blooms with a regular schedule of medium water. In early spring, if you've left your perennial plantings to stand over the winter, just snip the stalks back down to an inch above ground level.

  • Full Sun Perennials
  • Moderate to Low Moisture Once Established
  • Any Fast-Draining Soil
  • Deadhead for More Blooms & Prune Back in Early Spring
  • Easy to Grow & Low-Maintenance

The Prairie Splendor™ Coneflower is a neat and tidy form of the classic prairie wildflower! Order yours today at Nature Hills before this fantastic new variety sells out!
