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 August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Daisy like flowers, with reflexed petals that flare out from prominent, reddish-brown centres, top upright, leafy stems throughout the summer. A relatively tough plant, it will cope well with adverse weather conditions, and it will rarely need staking. Also, if the flowers are deadheaded regularly (or cut for the vase), it will often flower profusely for up to three months. It looks great when woven through a sunny border, or planted in bold drifts amongst ornamental grasses.

  • Garden care: Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. 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.
