Echinacea purpurea 'Rose Compact PRAIRIE SPLENDOR'

Coneflower

Plant Type: Perennial

A complement to the popular Echinacea PRAIRIE SPLENDOR is the Rose Compact PRAIRIE SPLENDOR coneflower. Just like the original, the rose compact is from a seed strain, has an earlier and longer bloom period. Rose Pink flowers that bloom in year one. A great little coneflower!

Praised for their large, daisy-like flowers which appear from midsummer thru fall, after many other perennials have finished blooming, Coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. If deadheaded, the bloom cycle will be extended. However, some spent blooms should be left on the plants in fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
