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, preferably heavy but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Found colonising a railway embankment in the USA by a retired horticulturalist, this beautiful coneflower has finely quilled ray florets (petals), which surround a rounded, orange-brown cone. Perfect for adding late colour to mixed or herbaceous borders, they also make fine companions to ornamental grasses.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. Support with ring stakes or brushwood well before the flowers appear.
