A hybrid Coneflower, featuring bright golden-yellow petals surrounding a large orange-green button-shaped cone. Plant habit is well-branched, strong and bushy. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for cutting. Coneflowers begin blooming in midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

These exciting perennials are easy to grow and generally require few maintenance activities. Deadheading the spent flowers will promote additional blooming, but will not produce as spectacular flower display as the initial flush of blooms. Pinching them back in the late spring and not providing excessive nutrients will often eliminate the need for caging.
