Much like ice cream should be a staple in your freezer, coneflowers should be a staple in your landscapes and gardens!
These rich, colorful blooms last for weeks, the plants last for years!
Coneflowers are the perfect compliment to other pretty perennials…salvia, beebalm, penstemon, garden phlox and shasta daisies. Any combination of these plants will be pleasing pops of color in your landscape or garden.
More reasons to scoop these up and get them planted:
Winter Hardy – Coneflowers can handle the winter freeze and will pop back up full of colorful blooms in the summer.
Pollinators – Butterflies love the nectar source coneflowers provide. It’s like a double scoop of beauty…blooms and butterflies!
Feed The Birds – Songbirds like to feed on the dry seed within the cone later in the season.
Color That Lasts – Like a great ice cream cone you want to savor for as long as possible, coneflowers deliver with long lasting, colorful blooms mid-summer until frost.
Inside Beauty – Coneflowers are capable of producing dozens of blooms, so you will have plenty of extras to cut to bring inside.
Drought Tolerant – Once established, coneflowers can withstand the dry, hot summer months.
So Many To Choose – If you have ever tried to decide which flavor of ice cream to get, you will feel the same when trying to pick your favorite color of coneflower. Yellows, oranges, purple, reds, and more. No guilt involved when you get them all!
