Echinacea purpurea (Coneflower) ‘Magnus’

Echinacea purpurea ‘Magnus’ has charming flowerheads with broad purple petals surrounding a dark cone. It is an excellent cut flower. These colorful blooms attract butterflies like a magnet,and the seed heads left to ripen will invite songbirds. ‘Magnus’ has a long bloom period and is heat, drought, and wind tolerant.

Echinacea ‘Magnus’ is beautiful planted en masse or grouped with other perennials. It may be planted in a perennial border or naturalized areas. The coarse, dark leaves are attractive before flowering, and the stiff habit makes a lovely addition to formal or cottage gardens. Plant with other perennials in the garden bed or flower border for a stunning display. It also pairs nicely with native plants.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Choose a location with full sun and well-draining soil. Loosen soil and mix in compost or manure. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (the part where the root meets the stem) is at the soil surface. Cover with soil to original soil surface. Spread a thin layer of mulch on the soil surface to maintain moisture and prevent weeds. Water thoroughly. Echinacea is drought tolerant once established so water new plants regularly. After frost, cut back stems to soil level. Plants may be divided or transplanted in spring or fall.

Pests or Diseases: Susceptible to aster yellows disease and eriophyid mites.
