Plant of the Week
This perennial is fabulous for its color and attraction to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. It's known for its late spring blossoms, but will also bloom in summer and in fall. When it gets leggy, simply cut it back, and in early spring, prune down to the rosettes. Coneflower likes sun but appreciates afternoon or morning shade.
This deer resistant plant is also a good cut flower. Plant in clusters or drifts for maximum garden impact against silvers, purples, and yellows.
The rosettes hug the ground and the bloom spikes are 1 ' 3' tall.
It's pretty drought-tolerant when established. It does require good drainage to thrive.
They can be divided in fall.
