Planting+

Purple Coneflower will thrive in drier gardens than most, the really nice thing about this plant is that it will also tolerate some light shade and good soil. The only thing that will shorten the lifespan is heavy clay or constant damp soil. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in some compost and cow manure grains. Plant the Purple Coneflower at the appropriate depth in a suitable sized hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.

The Purple Coneflower is great for the border

The Purple Coneflower's large, daisy-like flowers are an eye-catcher in every border. These pink flowers can be planted alongside Stachys Officinalis 'Rosea', Phlox, Larkspur as well as with ornamental grasses to create a wonderful combination. The Purple Coneflower also looks impressive when planted in large groups.

Care+

The Purple Coneflower is an easy-to-grow perennial that can remain in the same spot for several years. Be sure to prevent the soil around its roots from drying out. Blooms right through June to August, particularly if deadheaded and not allowed to go to seed. Its stems above the ground will die back in the winter. Over winter, cover this plant with a layer of fallen leaves. Wet soil is poorly tolerated during the winter. In spring, cut off all of its leaves and soon there will be some new shoots growing above the ground.

Extra+

Purple Cornflower is originally from North America and is part of the Aster family. Its flowers consist of a thick orange-brown centre surrounded by bright pink petals. The flowers can grow up to 10 cm wide and will attract several bees and butterflies to the garden. Did you know that the Echinaforce herbal remedy is made from this plant? The former name of this plant is Rudbeckia.
