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

  • Position: Full sun
  • Soil: Moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: Average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: Fully hardy

Large, bright yellow, daisy-like flowers up to 12cm across with conical centres that are green to begin with and then fade to yellowish brown with age. A stunning, clump-forming coneflower that flowers from midsummer through to early autumn and looks particularly lovely with late summer-flowering perennials and ornamental grasses. Like all coneflowers, it copes well in a sunny spot and is ideal for the back of a border that doesn't dry out over summer.

  • Garden care:
    Best planted in full sun in groups of three or more in soil that is well drained not water-logged in winter. Protect new growth from slugs and snails. Once established, lift and divide congested clumps in autumn or spring. Support with ring stakes or brushwood well before the flowers appear.
