Echinacea purpurea 'Rubinstern' (Large Plant)

Coneflower

Hardy Perennial

Cone Flowers are much loved by bees and butterflies when grown in the garden, so are a common choice for wildlife gardening. The clump-forming plants work well in cottage garden borders, and will flower for a long period. Echincea 'Rubinstern' is particularly recommended, thanks to its rich pink, daisy-like flowers, which can be up to 12cm (5") wide. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread 50cm (20").

Grow echinacea plants in a sunny or semi shaded position on moist, well drained soil. Coneflowers prefer a deep, fertile soil and will benefit from the addition of some well rotted manure or garden compost to soil, prior to planting.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season until coneflower plants are fully established. Deadhead faded flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. In autumn, cut back faded echinacea flower stems and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant. Divide overcrowded plants in autumn or spring.
