More Information
LoreEchinacea root was discovered by Native Americans within its range for healing properties. In recent years science has confirmed that the root contains chemicals that stimulate the immune system. Coneflowers are part of the American prairie plant communities and are a well documented bird habitat plant.
Average Size at MaturityReaches 8 to 20 in. tall, 24 in. wide.
Bloom TimeSummer
Design IdeasThis smaller version of the native coneflower is better suited to limited spaces seeking a wild garden look, an all-native landscape, wildlife friendly habitat or just a beautiful flower garden. This is a valuable late season bloomer for the traditional perennial border. Makes a super injection of color for tired foundation planting. Equally well suited to casual country gardens along picket fences or in mixed borders. Exotic orange coloring also works nicely in tropical plantings and crisp form can be surprising in spare, modern compositions.
