Buy Echinacea 'Butterfly Kisses' (PBR) coneflower: One of the best new doubles

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: most soils, except very dry or boggy
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Recently introduced by the Dutch breeder Arie Blom, this is one of the best in the new breed of double coneflowers. Compact and reliable, it produces loads of scented flowers that will last well into autumn. Butterflies and bees will flock to it, and after the flowers have faded, smaller birds will come for the seeds. Try it at the front of a sunny border, or pot it up for the patio.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. In autumn cut back all dead flower stems to the ground. Coneflowers benefit from a spring or autumn mulch with well-rotted compost.

I have planted 2 of these in containers and they have been beautiful. Both had plenty of flowers. I've got my fingers crossed that they have survived the winter.

A little slow to get going but a very pretty, dainty plant. Very different to the larger, coarser echinacea.

Plants birds love in the winter garden

As frost descends and the leaves gather on the lawn, the most important colour is red because it glows against the backdrop of fading stems in muddy shades of khaki, grey and brown. Red’s the colour that fixes the rest of the palette and luckily red berri
