General Description

Crazy Pink coneflower (cultivar 'Adam Saul') is a hardy, prolific perennial that often has dozens upon dozens of flowers open at one time. Its fragrant blooms have a large, orange central disk accentuated by true pink petals that point downward.

Big Sky coneflowers all attract bees and butterflies and provide seeds for hungry birds in the fall and winter months. Use these perennials in flower borders, en masse in landscape beds, in meadow or in a sunny container.

They grow best full to partial sun and rich to average soil with good drainage. They are not overly water thirsty, but do check to make sure the soil is never too dry. Deadheading spent flowers keeps plants looking clean and attractive and will encourage continued flowering.
