 This plant boasts 3” wide, hot magenta pink flowers that really catches your eye from a distance. Flowers lighten to light lavender pink with age. The flowers are presented on dark stems above a truly compact habit. 

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.
