Echinacea purpurea Magnus (Coneflower)

Bright rose pink petals, that fade to pale pink with age, droop slightly from a coppery-brown spiky cone and bloom on top of strong stems. Fast growth rate.

Use as cut or dried flowers. Be sure to keep some flowers in the garden over winter, as the blackened heads provide cold-season garden interest, as well as food for finches and other winter birds.
