Description: Breathtaking, fade-proof, rose-pink flowers from early summer right into fall, without dead-heading! This award-winning bloomer stays compact and tidy in the landscape and adds fantastic color to mixed containers. Highly adaptable; tolerates poor soil, heat, humidity, and even drought, once established. A nativar perennial that grows 2-3′ tall and 1-2′ wide. Excellent cut flowers. Bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and all other pollinators love this coneflower. Sun to part sun, well draining soil. Drought tolerant once established. As with other coneflowers, deer don’t like to eat the rough leaves. Does great either in containers or garden beds. Leave the dried seed heads on the plants in the winter so the birds will have a nice snack. Blooms summer into fall. Many different species of butterflies including monarchs, tiger swallowtails, skippers, American ladies, red admirals, and fritillaries will also feed on the nectar.
This plant in the 1-gallon containers are 10-18″ tall and wide.
