Echinacea is a native of Eastern Canada and the USA, it is most common in the Ozark Mountains and the Mississippi/Ohio Valley. Of the 10 species of Echinacea, the Purple Coneflower lends itself well for use in the garden and is more tolerant of gardeners doing their thing.
Growing up to 120 cm (48 in), this herbaceous perennial is 25cm (10 in) wide at maturity. Long flowering throughout Spring into late Summer, this member of the sunflower family is very attractive to butterflies, bees and nectar feeding birds.
Preferring a well drained soil, it is not fussy about soil pH, is drought tolerant once established but thrives in moist soils. The plant can be lifted and divided in Spring or Autumn and propagated by ‘pencil thick’ root cuttings taken in late Autumn.
Offered is a packet containing 100 seeds and Grownotes.
