Improved version of the classic fore-bearer of the many varieties available and still one of the most dependable and interesting. Rich, lavender to purple shaded petals droop slight and draw butterflies like crazy. An improved cultivar of the species purpurea that is native to North America. The prickliness of the leaves and stem of Echinacea make them resistant to deer browsing. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter. Allow some spent blooms to remain on the plants in fall since their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds.

Care:

Echinacea are native to central and eastern U.S. and are well adapted to withstand severe conditions. Light, loamy soil is best but any well-drained dirt will do. They like it sunny and hot. Deadheading spent flowers significantly prolongs their bloom time. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant.

Other Attributes:
Pollinator Friendly Deer Resistant
Good cut flower Dries well
Attracts butterflies Long season interest
