Buy Echinacea purpurea 'Vintage Wine' (PBR) coneflower: Cheerful, deep pink flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    An unusual variety of coneflower with scented, deep pink flowers that have shorter, stiffer petals than other varieties, and deep brown central cones. This cheerful, daisy-like echinacea flowers from midsummer through to autumn. It is a tough plant that does not need staking and it makes an excellent cut flower. Like other coneflowers, it is long-flowering and will cope well with adverse weather conditions, except drought. Try it dotted through a sunny, mixed border or in bold drifts among grasses. It is attractive to bees and butterflies and birds will flock to the seedheads.

  • 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.

Truly beautiful flowers with strong colour and long flowering period. Jury is out in respect to hardiness -so far so good but echinacea do not always survive cold and wet on our heavy clay soil.
