Orange Coneflower is a butterfly favorite with a mid-summer-to-fall bloom time that can be prolonged by removing spent blossoms. The large, daisy-like flowers have yellow-orange rays and purple-brown centers. Plants reach 3′ and can form colonies in large plantings on sunny sites with medium-dry to medium-wet soil.
Dormant bare root plants ship each year during optimal transplanting season: Fall (October) or Spring (April/May).
