People have been asking for it, and we've finally found a Coneflower worthy of the Proven Winners® stamp of approval! This new seed strain shows a variety of beautiful shades of red, varying from reddish-orange to pinkish red. Each 3½ in flower has horizontal petals. With a shorter stature, it is a great fit for the front of the border, small spaces, and combination containers. Just like other Coneflowers, this will bloom nearly all summer long, all the way up to frost.

Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
