Echinacea purpurea Compact Prairie Splendor, also known as Coneflower, is a highly adaptable, flowering, herbaceous perennial that produces delightful, 4" to 5" inch, deep rosy-mauve, daisy-shaped blooms with raised, rusty-bronze, hairy center eyes. This 2007 Fleuroselect Gold Medal Award Winner, produces compact, well formed plants with lush green, ovate to broad-lanceolate foliage and abundant flower blooms on sturdy, stiff stems from late spring all the way through fall. This cottage and cutting garden favorite grows 18" to 24" inches tall, self sows freely and will typically continually produce blooms without deadheading. Prairie Splendor is native to moist prairies, woodland meadows and open fields in the mid-western United States, however this variety is well adapted and thrives in almost any climate zone. Excellent as a cut flower and used fresh or dried, it is hard to imagine a cutting garden without Echinacea adding to the beauty! Once fall frost turns the seed head cones black, if they are left to overwinter they will provide a welcome winter snack to goldfinches and other small birds during the cold season. Packet: 25 seeds
