Beginning in midsummer, a profusion of vibrant pink flowers with an orange cone are produced atop compact, knee-high plants with narrow, green leaves.  The perfect size for growing in decorative containers, small courtyard gardens, or near the front of the flower border.

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.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

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. If properly cared for, they will form attractive colonies and will live for many years.
