--------------------------------------

 

The prominent centre of the daisy-like flowers is orange-brown. It is a compact variety. Like other coneflowers, it is long-flowering and will cope well with adverse weather conditions, except drought. Try it dotted through the middle of a sunny, mixed border or in bold drifts among grasses where it will extend the season of interest. It is attractive to bees and butterflies, and birds will flock to the seedheads.

Sowing instructions: Sow at 20-24C on the surface of a good seed sowing mix and cover with a very fine sprinkling of sowing mix or vermiculite. Ensure the mix is damp but not wet and seal inside a plastic bag until after germination, which usually takes 10-21 days.

 

Planting instructions: part shade on ordinary well drained soil. Flowering is prolonged if flower stalks are cut off as soon as the flowers fade.
