An extraordinary tall coneflower with bright green 'petals' and prominent almost black centres. These striking perennials are perfect for the back of a sunny border. Grower Chris Marchant from Orchard Dene says this plant provides 'useful punctuation' to massed plantings of daisies or umbel-type flowers.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. Support with ring stakes or brushwood well before the flowers appear.
