Echinacea purpurea Ruby Star


Purple Coneflower

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.196.970


(=‘Rubinstern’) A selection of our most popular native North American wildflower with larger, more vibrantly coloured flowers than the species. From a central brown cone the deep carmine-pink petals are held flat, rather than drooping like the species. Coneflowers bloom in summer and fall , forming a showy, upright clump which is a favourite feeding station for many butterflies. Seed heads are useful in dried arrangements. Plants may be easily divided in early spring. Self-sown plants can also be moved at that time. Excellent for cutting.
