Moss Mountain Farm Coneflower Collection - 3 Pack
Praised for their cheerful and brightly colored flowers, perennial coneflowers (also known as Echinacea) are a mainstay in today’s garden. I use them in both our vegetable and ornamental gardens, and they are magnets for pollinator bees and butterflies.
I’ve found these are the perfect companion plants to any of the re-blooming daylilies and summer phlox.
Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plant in the fall, since their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide texture and interest to the winter garden. Available in a variety of colors, these perennials return with abundance each year.
Magnus Purple Coneflower
This is the classic coneflower! Beautiful rose pink ray petals surround a coppery brown, spiky central cone. Petals are held horizontally, making the flowers appear even bigger. Newer blooms are more intense in color and lighten to pale rose as they age, lending a bicolor effect to the entire clump of Echinacea.
PowWow® White Coneflower
These pure white flowers with a golden yellow cone measure 3-4” across with wide, overlapping, reflexed petals. Flowers bloom prolifically from early through late summer. The stems are stiff and well-branched. More branches result in more flowers per plant and a showier display in the landscape. This first-year flowering perennial reportedly keeps on blooming without having to be deadheaded, though you may still want to trim back spent flowers to maintain a tidy appearance.
PowWow® Wild Berry Coneflower
This new variety is incredibly impressive! It’s no surprise that it’s a 2010 All-America Selection. The plants are stocky and relatively short, and each one carries a bouquet of fragrant, deep purple-pink flowers that measure 3-4”. The stems are stiff and branched.
I’ve noticed that the older flowers were nearly the same magenta color as the new ones, meaning the flowers held their bright color as they aged. This first-year flowering perennial reportedly keeps on blooming without having to be deadheaded, though you may still want to trim back spent flowers to maintain a tidy appearance.
