Glorious rosy-pink blooms bobbing atop hardy native plants that bloom freely over a very long season.  A simple and beautiful plant for the garden, 'Bravado' holds its extra-wide petals out flat, offering up even more color from late spring until the cold fall weather sets in. The blooms are 4 to 5 inches wide, their hue varying from light cotton-candy pink to deep magenta-tinged rose. The cheery golden-brown cones, which bring in the butterflies and bees, are superb for drying and using in Everlasting arrangements!  Superb for a large planting anywhere, they show to particular advantage in the back of the border, drifting across a perennial bed, or in any naturalized woodland or meadow setting. Super-easy to start from seed, they bloom the first year and for many years thereafter, lasting through the worst heat and dry weather summer has to offer.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Echinacea purpurea is a wildflower native to the eastern United States and is well-adapted to survive the hot, windy conditions typical of that region. If properly cared for, they will form attractive colonies and will live for many years. Coneflowers like it sunny and hot. Though they will tolerate light shade, fewer flowers will be produced and the plants will be weakened. Light, loamy soils are best but coneflowers will grow in any well-drained soil. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant.
