Rocky Top Hybrid Coneflower
Indifferent to harsh weather from drought to humidity to cold.
Coneflowers are irresistible to butterflies and are as lovely in cutflower arrangements as they are in the garden. And birds, especially finches, love to visit the cones for the seeds, bringing even more beauty to the landscape!
Hardy from one end of the country to the other, happy in any sunny soil, and indifferent to harsh weather from drought to humidity to cold, Coneflower is a "must have" for the perennial border. They require absolutely no care beyond good watering the first year to get it established in your garden. Remember, this is the native plant that bloomed in the tough, unbroken soil of the midwest and far west -- it is ready to put up with just about anything your yard throws its way! Zones 3-9.
