Perennial Plant Association 1998 Perennial Plant of the Year!
The classic purple coneflower with rose-pink petals and a coppery brown central cone. Newer blooms are more intense in color and lighten to pale rose as they age, lending a bicolor effect to the clump. Praised for their large, daisy-like flowers which appear from midsummer thru fall after many other perennials have finished blooming, bloom can be extended with deadheading. Leave spent blooms in fall to provide winter seed for finches and other songbirds and winter interest.
A selection of the native Echinacea purpurea, ‘Magnus’ coneflower was the Perennial Plant of the Year when Vinland Valley Nursery first opened and remains a fabulous choice these many years later!
