A North American native. Produces a daisy flower with pronounced central cone. They make a bold statement in a sunny border or an open meadow. Recent smaller varieties are excellent in small gardens and containers.
This first year flowering perennial reportedly keeps on blooming without having to be deadheaded, though you may still want to trim back spent flowers to maintain a tidy appearance.
Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
