Magnus Coneflower

Description
Bring goldfinches and other seed-loving birds to the landscape with Magnus Coneflower. Its rosy-pink petals surround a scarlet-red to bronze central cone. Plant grows 36-48" tall on strong stems that stay upright throughout summer rains and high wind. Coneflower prefer a full-sin site with well-drained soil. Their tall stature makes them ideal for planting at the back of a perennial border or in a mixed container garden where they can take up the center spot. Surround them with shorter flowering varieties or foliage plants for an eye-catching display. These are easy-to-grow perennials that tolerate drought conditions with ease, bloom all summer long until the first frost of fall, and require no maintenance. Butterflies love them, but deer tend to avoid. Hardy in Zones 4-9.

  • CommentsThis new and improved variety has large single flowers with distinctive seed heads, but the deep rose petals extend out not down. Grows up to 3' tall on sturdy stems, beautiful planted in masses or with Daisies, Black Eyed Susans and other summer perennials. Heat and drought tolerant. Named 1998 Perennial Plant of the Year! A plant with bold four-inch across magenta-rose flowers; petals horizontal, not pendulous. The plants hold the flowers well above the clean foliage, on stems that are plenty long for cutting. If faded flowers are cut back, additional blooms will be encouraged. But, if the seed heads are allowed to form, small seed-feeding birds such as finches will find their way to the plants and brighten the garden after the flowers have faded from memory.
