Plant Description

A new coneflower hybrid from Terra Nova Nursery, ‘Now Cheesier’ has 3”, cheesy yellow flowers with large, golden cones. It is a bit more orange than ‘Mac n Cheese’. Flowering stems are upright and well-branched. Plants are less than 2’ tall and a tad wider. As with all of the coneflowers, flowers start out more intensely colored and fade over time. They want full sun, good drainage, and average to dry BASIC soil. The coneflower hybrids do not like acidic soils and winter moisture. Mid/late-summer, dry-growing, flowering companions could include Terra Cotta or Paprika yarrow, Pink Muhly Grass, and Russian Sage. Best planted in late spring through very early fall.
