    A recently introduced compact form that is ideal for pots and containers, as well as mass-planting in a herbaceous border or prairie-style setting. The single flowers appear a sunny shade of orange-yellow and gradually take on a pinkish-salmon hue as they age. This creates a very pretty effect when seen in large numbers. The flowers are fragrant and will attract bees and butterflies into the garden, and make excellent and long-lived additions to the vase.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. In autumn cut back all dead flower stems to the ground. Coneflowers benefit from a spring or autumn mulch with well-rotted compost.
