A shorter version of the well-known native purple coneflower, selected by Kim Hawks. Large, daisy-like flowers with clear pink, reflexed ray petals and large, bronzy-orange central cones appear atop knee-high plants with sturdy stems. Its small stature makes this cultivar a great choice for small gardens. It tends to grow slowly, so it will not overtake neighboring plants. Great garden performer.
Praised for their large, daisy-like flowers which appear from midsummer thru fall, after many other perennials have finished blooming, Coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. If deadheaded, the bloom cycle will be extended. However, some spent blooms should be left on the plants in fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
