Common name: Coneflower
A rare color for Echinacea, saturated cranberry red, double pom-pom flowers that don’t bleach out as they age, putting on a sizzling hot show of color in the landscape for several months beginning in early summer.
The fragrant blossoms are long lasting in fresh bouquets and attract butterflies like a magnet.
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. Plant in well drained soil and in full sun exposure. Deer Resistant.
