A member of the sunflower family, the Purple Coneflower is known for its distinct seed head and willowy beauty. These flowers are major pollinator attractors – birds, butterflies and bees love them. Deer do not like them, so they are very suitable where deer can be problems in the garden.
The seeds are small, so combine with sand for easier planting. Soaking the seeds can help with germination rates. Purple Coneflower grows best in well-drained soil, in full sun or light shade. The plants are drought and heat tolerant. Plant the seeds in masses for a striking effect.
