For a spectacular display of bright summer colours, nothing quite measures up to Coneflowers (Echinacea). Reaching up to 4 feet in height, these striking daisy-like flowers come in a variety of magnificent colours, from classic pale purple to lemon, hot pink, marmalade and even green. All have the trademark centre cone; in some varieties, this is a small button surrounded by a ring of smooth, narrow petals, while in other types, the cone is the main attraction, nearly eclipsing its lovely little collar of petals. Radiant and breathtaking, coneflowers bloom in summer and brighten your yard with colour for weeks. They attract butterflies, birds and honeybees as well.

Coneflowers (Echinacea) do well in full sun in zones 4 through 9 and will thrive in well-drained clay and dry soil types. They should be planted in the spring, at least 18 inches apart to allow for growth. One of the pleasures of planting coneflowers is that you can grow them almost anywhere as long as they get enough sun. These hardy flowers set the standard for low maintenance; they are unappealing to deer, resistant to pests and disease and tolerant of dry conditions.

Plant them randomly amongst shorter perennials for a wildflower prairie effect, or situate them at the rear of a border for a truly eye-catching backdrop. They are lovely in both fresh and dried arrangements, so don't hesitate to plant some in the cutting garden. They are a must-have in naturalised areas, where they will come back and dazzle season after season. You may also wish to place some where you can see them from a window, so you can watch birds enjoy the seed heads in the autumn. Coneflowers are a perfect choice for the casual gardener who wants maximum results with minimal effort. Choose from our fantastic variety of coneflowers for sale, and be prepared for a lively summertime garden.
