Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ECHINACEA 'Evan Saul'( BIG SKY™ SUNDOWN, BIG SKY™ SERIES) PP17659
Big Sky™ Sundown Coneflower, Hybrid Coneflower
Big Sky™ Sundown coneflower ('Evan Saul') has an alluring flowerhead with a dark red cone surrounded by orange-red petals. This hybrid was created from a cross between the eastern purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) and the Ozark coneflower (Echinacea paradoxa).
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.
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. Deadheading spent flowers keeps plants looking clean and attractive and will encourage continued flowering. Coneflowers will self-sow and make welcome additions to sunny perennial borders or butterfly gardens.
