'Henry Eilers' is a selection that has bright yellow, finely quilled or fluted, 3 inch flowers with brown button centers, on 5 to 6 foot stalks. It gets the name, Sweet Coneflower, because the foliage is slightly vanilla scented. In good soil, it will erupt from the ground. Pair it up with ironweed, mallows, Joe Pye, and big bluestem. In leaner soils, it is milder mannered. Cut flowers last 3 weeks. Amazing! You will love this plant!
