Easy Care Butterfly Magnet

Smart landscapes rely on rugged, low maintenance native perennials that come back year after year and produce long-lasting blooms all season long.

The Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) is a prairie native that really delivers.

Plant these in long drifts of gentle zig zags in front of larger shrubs to create a very natural look in your backyard. They'll pair beautifully to create a restful oasis with other cool tones, such as False Indigo, Butterfly Bush, Salvia or Russian Sage. Underplant with Ajuga groundcover to complete the look.

Or, choose to partner with other rough textured native favorites such as Black-Eyed Susan or Blanket Flower. Plant in clusters of odd numbered groups - 3, 5, 7 or 9 - for the best look.

Next, layer in a fine textured ornamental grass, such as Maiden Grass or Prairie Dropseed and you'll achieve a visually appealing combination that works from the late spring through fall. Leave these plants standing for winter interest, and only trim back in early spring.

You'll love watching butterflies and wonderful goldfinch birds flit from flower to flower, and so will your friends and family. Make sure you have seating nearby, you'll want to watch this "Nature Television" show of your very own.
