Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ECHINACEA( BIG SKY™ SERIES)
Big Sky™ Coneflower, Hybrid Coneflower
Coneflowers in the Big Sky™ series have fantastic, sweetly fragrant flowers that come in an array of colors. This hybrid series was created from crosses of the common purple coneflower ( Echinacea purpurea) and the Ozark coneflower ( Echinacea paradoxa ).
Coneflowers 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—though it is nice to leave a few seedheads for the birds. Plants will self-sow.
Big Sky™ coneflowers all attract bees and butterflies and provide seeds for hungry birds in fall and winter. They make welcome additions to sunny perennial borders or butterfly gardens.
