Coneflower Plant FeaturesOne of the best flowering perennials for sunny sites, echinacea, commonly called coneflower, is a snap to grow. These heat- and drought-resistant beauties develop wave after wave of blooms all summer long. Plus, coneflowers, are a top menu item for hungry butterflies which will flock to your yard to enjoy the nectar-rich blooms. Coneflower colors include pink, red, orange, white, and yellow. Most varieties have large single-petaled blooms, but double- and triple-flowered types are also available. Coneflowers grow 18 to 36 inches tall and are deer resistant. Hardy from zones 3-8.

Coneflower Growing InstructionsPlant coneflowers in a spot that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun a day. They aren't too fussy about soil type, but prefer a rich, well-drained garden location. Remove the faded flower heads as they appear to encourage the development of additional flower stalks. Coneflowers also look terrific in containers.
