Echinacea Purpurea Pica Bella
Like other coneflowers it is long flowering and will cope well with adverse weather conditions, except drought. Try it dotted through the middle of a sunny mixed border or in bold drifts among grasses where it will extend the season of interest. It is attractive to bees and butterflies and birds will flock to the seedheads.
Lift and divide congested colonies in Autumn or Spring. In Autumn cut back all dead flower stems to the ground. Coneflowers benefit from a Spring or Autumn mulch with well rotted compost.
Height 45 cm-60 cm
Compact coneflower that typically grows in an upright clump to 24" tall on stems clad with toothed, tapering narrow-dark green leaves. Daisy like coneflowers with narrow deep pink rays and orange bronze central cones bloom from June to September.
