Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ECHINACEA 'Emily Saul'( AFTER MIDNIGHT™, BIG SKY™ SERIES) PP18768
After Midnight™ Coneflower, Hybrid Coneflower
After Midnight ™ coneflower ('Emily Saul') is a dwarf member of the Big Sky ™ series. Its fragrant flowers have fuchsia-red petals and a large, black central cone. This hybrid was created from a cross between the eastern purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) and the Ozark coneflower (Echinacea paradoxa ).
Plants 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. Big Sky ™ coneflowers all attract bees and butterflies and provide seeds for hungry birds in the fall and winter months. 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. Coneflowers will self-sow and make welcome additions to sunny perennial borders or butterfly gardens.
