Bright Red Coneflower Seeds - Echinacea Flowers Perennial
Bright upright plants, Coneflowers are North American perennials in the daisy family (Asteraceae). They grow 2 to 4 feet in height with dark green foliage. They are fast growers and self-sow their seed profusely.
These midsummer bloomers can flower from midsummer through fall frost! Coneflowers have raised cone-like centers (hence, the name) which contain seeds that attract butterflies. Leave the seed heads after bloom and you’ll also attract songbirds!
Trouble-free, coneflowers are drought-tolerant, once established. They can take the heat! As native plants with prickly stems, they are more deer-resistant than most flowering plants.
