Rich golden petals with hints of orange surround the rusty coloured centre of these large rose scented blooms. Attractive to bees and butterflies, ideal for cutting, long flowering and trouble free - coneflowers are well worth including in the borders. They look particularly at home in cottage or prairie style planting schemes.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. Dead-heading will encourage more flowers to form but if left uncut they will set seed which will help keep the birds fed into the winter. They will benefit from a spring or autumn mulch with well-rotted compost.
