Plant Description

Striking, large flower heads rise above neat clumps of foliage 2 to 3 1/2 feet tall. The flower heads have light rose rays (petals) and contrasting orange-red centers. At maturity, the rays angle downward and the center assumes a distinct cone shape. Plants are perennial and bloom June through August. In our opinion, no sunny perennial garden should be without Purple Coneflowers. They are easy to grow, the foliage is attractive, and the colors and form of the flowers are unique and beautiful. Coneflowers attract butterflies and its seed is good for birds, too.
