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

    A strong-growing coneflower, that will help fill your borders with lots of yellow daisy-like flowers, which as they mature turn orange in the summer and autumn. These flowers are really large (for a coneflower) and will help attract beneficial pollinators into the garden. They are equally at home in the cottage garden, or teamed with ornamental grasses in a prairie-style planting scheme.

  • 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.

Fantastic show in late summer

Good big, bright yellow flowers on sturdy stems in its first year.Bees and other insects love it. Great mixed with grasses or in cottage garden style borders. Will have to see how hardy it is after the winter; have had mixed results with other echinacea cultivars - they don't mind cold, but cold and very wet conditions on clay is a problem.

Hi, I got two Now Cheesier plants from Crocus about four weeks ago. They came with a small tuft of baby leaves. The shoots have not progressed in size over the weeks and few days ago I noticed they have shrivelled. I followed all planting instructions. What seems to be the problem? PS - I got Amazing Dream plants at the same time and they started sprouting out a week ago! Having said that, my Tiki Torch plants seem dormant and not doing anything at the moment. Thanks you, Dragana
