Coneflowers in the Fall

Echinacea Double Scoop™ Raspberry

I had planned to share a bit in this post about some of the tried and true Fall plants that have just come in, but it seems that in every shipment there is always one plant that grabs my attention and this Coneflower is the standout.

Echinacea Double Scoop™ Raspberry has large, double flowers of raspberry-red flared rays on compact stems. In addition to people, it also attracts butterflies, but resists deer.

Coneflower is easy to grow in any well-drained soil and requires little water once established. Plant it in sunny mixed borders, cutting gardens and mass plantings. Deadhead it regularly, but at the end of the season, be sure to leave the last flower heads for the birds.
