Glade Coneflower (Echinacea Simulata)

Smiling Sun Gardens

Regular price $6.00

Slender, graceful flowering stems hold the flower heads above the tidy clumps of strappy basal foliage. Long lavender pink petals droop from the brown cones, flowers in June and July. Different from the Pale Coneflower in that the Glade Coneflower has orange pollen and the Pale has yellow pollen. Both are sun and drought tolerant.

Culture: Full sun, tolerant of rocky and very dry situations. Garden soil is fine, just do not water too much!
