Plant Type: Perennials
This hybrid offers a total color breakthrough in coneflowers. Large single blooms have neon mango-yellow petals surrounding a deep golden-orange cone. Flowers have a sweet honeysuckle fragrance, appearing from midsummer well into the autumn and attracting butterflies like a magnet. Flowers are held on branching stems above a low mound of narrow dark green leaves. Excellent for cutting. Remove faded flowers regularly to encourage more buds to form. Blooming is best with full sun conditions.
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.
