This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: most soils, except very dry or boggy
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Deep orange-red petals flare out from a bright orange cone creating a flying saucer look that looks fab in borders or prairie-style settings. The flowers are really bright, so are great for catching the eye from a distance. Great in hot-themed borders, or for a vivid contrast pair it with purple.

  • 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.
