More Information

Echinacea Prairie Splendour Deep Rose (cone flower) – Reflexed petals from an intricate domed centre. A fully hardy perennial; supplied in 9cm pots.

Known for their use in herbal medicine, these herbaceous perennials have large, daisy-like flowers with a central cone, leading to their common name, coneflower. Echinacea is great for wildlife, known for attracting bees, birds and other pollinators. It has nectar/pollen rich flowers and, in Autumn, seeds for birds.

Growing Echinacea

Echinacea are easy to grow as they tolerate most soils (except very dry ones), and sturdy stems mean that staking is not required. They are tolerant of drought and can withstand colder climates, but benefit from mulching and winter protection.

Grow Echinacea in well-drained soil in full sun. Deadhead the flowers as they fade, but leave the seedheads for the birds in Autumn. They benefit from being mulched with well-rotted manure or compost in Autumn. Lift congested clumps in Autumn or Spring, and cut them back as the new foliage emerges.
