General Culture:
Purple coneflower should be grown in full sun to light shade. Echinacea, a North American genus in the Daisy family, has big, bright flowers that appear from late June until frost. Plants thrive in average soils or hot, dry conditions and shrug off cold. Blooms last well cut or dried, and the seeds in the large cone at the heart of the flower head provide nourishment for birds.
Noteworthy Characteristics:
Blooms of Echinacea Harvest Moon™ offer a lively combination of golden yellow petals surrounding a cone of golden orange. The big (4in), fragrant flower heads hold their colors atop thick stems ideal for bouquets. These plants are hardy and vigorous and will produce up to 30 blooms once established.
Japanese beetles may be a problem in areas that have this insect.
Superb for a large planting anywhere, they show to particular advantage in the back of the border, drifting across a perennial bed, or in any naturalized woodland or meadow setting.
