More Information

Echinacea purpurea Prairie Splendour White (Coneflower) is a tall, beautiful flower that stands at an average height of 2–3 feet. Its white petals are surrounded by deep magenta cones, giving the plant its distinct look. The foliage around each white bloom is bright green and fine-textured, adding to its appeal.

This variety of Echinacea purpurea boasts some of the longest blooming periods of Echinaceas in general. It typically blooms from early summer to late autumn. These make great cut flowers, as their long stems make them ideal for bouquets. Furthermore, they’re perfect for use as borders or even as part of a wildflower meadow. Thanks to their hearty growth and attractive appearance.

Growing Echinacea

Echinacea purpurea Prairie Splendour White is a great choice for gardeners looking for an eye-catching flower that’s easy to care for. Echinacea are easy to grow as they tolerate most soils (except very dry ones), and sturdy stems mean that staking is not required. In their native eastern and central North America, Echinacea grow on prairies and along the edges of woodlands, so they will thrive in places with full or partial sun through the day, they can become leggy if they experience too much shade.

They are tolerant of drought and can withstand colder climates, but benefit from mulching and winter protection. Water it regularly during long periods without rain, and fertilise once a month using a balanced fertiliser suitable for flowering plants.

Deadhead the flowers as they fade, but leave the seed heads 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. With just a little bit of care and attention, these stunning flowers will reward you with months of beauty in return!
