A dwarf version of the well-known native purple coneflower. Large, daisy-like flowers with clear pink, recurved 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. Praised for their large, daisy-like flowers which appear from midsummer through fall, after many other perennials have finished blooming, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. If deadheaded, the bloom cycle will be extended.
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.
