Echinacea purpurea 'Prairie Splendor™ Rose Compact'

Coneflower

Series: Prairie Splendor™

The seed strain PRAIRIE SPLENDOR™ has been popular due to its earlier bloom time and extended blooming performance. Now it comes in a smaller size, reducing the need for PGR applications. With no vernalization required, you'll have easy success with this first-year flowering variety. Rose pink flowers. From Syngenta.

Our products are available for retail purchase only. Please call for availability as stock levels fluctuate throughout the season. We are unable to ship plants or other products.

Praised for their large, daisy-like flowers which appear from midsummer thru fall, after many other perennials have finished blooming, Coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. If deadheaded, the bloom cycle will be extended. However, some spent blooms should be left on the plants in fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.

Height:

14-16 in

Spread:

12-14 in

Hardiness Zone:

Interesting Notes:

Echinacea purpurea is a wildflower native to the eastern United States and is well-adapted to survive the hot, windy conditions typical of that region. If properly cared for, they will form attractive colonies and will live for many years.

Coneflower Growing and Maintenance Tips

Coneflowers like it sunny and hot. Though they will tolerate light shade, fewer flowers will be produced and the plants will be weakened. Light, loamy soils are best but coneflowers will grow in any well-drained soil. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant.
