Dazzling orange petals that are slightly darker at their base surround a prominent orange-red boss. This creates a zesty combination of colour that looks great in a 'hot' themed border. The flowers have a spicy fragrance and look great when cut and popped into a simple arrangement in a vase. The long lasting flowers attract butterflies and bees and the birds will flock to them after they have set seed.

  • 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.
