Large daisy-like flowerheads, with white reflexed ray florets and a russet-coloured cone, appear on rigid, upright stems for several months from midsummer. Butterflies, and later birds, will also be attracted to them, making this a wonderful addition to a wildlife-friendly border.
- Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. In autumn cut back all dead flower stems to the ground. Coneflowers benefit from a spring or autumn mulch with well-rotted compost.
