Purple Coneflower Echinacea Seeds

Organic, Heirloom, Native

This treasured, heirloom wildflower, native to the eastern U.S., is a long-lived perennial that blooms for a month or more beginning in midsummer. The pinkish-purple petals of the stunning, daisy-like flowers surround a large, dark brown cone. Petals begin to droop as the cone enlarges and fills with seeds, which attract birds in the fall and winter. Echinacea grows well in a variety of conditions, and is excellent for borders and water-wise gardens. Perfect for fresh cut flowers.

I found these seeds to have a high germination rate and the seedlings to transplant well. It has taken two seasons for them to really establish themselves, but this year they have come up nice and full and have a large number of buds waiting to bloom. Perennials are definitely long term investments, so don't expect them to be marvelous the first year. But, the work is well worth it! This is a wonderful plant to add to your garden and it's perfect for Colorado growing conditions!
