Summer is not complete without coneflowers in bloom! The yellow-blooming Mango Meadowbrite™ ('CBG Cone3') has orange-brown center cones that attract butterflies to the flowers and small songbirds to its seeds. Its flowers smell of a light spicy orange fragrance. A member of the Meadowbrite Series™ of coneflowers created at the Chicago Botanic Gardens, this cultivar was discovered as a branch mutation on an 'Art's Pride' (Orange Meadowbrite™) coneflower.
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.
Meadowbrite™ coneflowers all attract bees and butterflies and provide seeds for hungry birds in fall and winter. They make welcome additions to sunny perennial borders, meadows or butterfly gardens.
