Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year 1998

Irresistible to butterflies, long-blooming, ultra-colorful, and carefree—what could be more delightful than a large stand of brilliant Echinacea 'Magnus' Coneflower? It was the Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year, and one look at these big, hot-pink blooms will tell you why.

The petals are held nearly straight out from the bloom, instead of bent back like many other coneflowers, giving 'Magnus' more color on every giant 4- to 6-inch bloom. And there are simply so many blooms—beginning in late spring and continuing into fall. When they finally do pass, be sure to let the birds feast on the huge mahogany-brown coneheads or harvest them for dried arrangements.

Carefree in any sunny spot, these drought-tolerant plants reach about 3 feet tall. They tolerate light shade, though best color occurs in the sun. Bearing literally hundreds of blooms over its many months of color, 'Magnus' is a garden workhorse yet looks so effortless and lush in the sunny bed or border.

'Magnus' Coneflower withstands the worst heat and dry weather that summer has to offer. The flowers are also superb in the vase, if you can tear them away from the butterflies, that is. A natural treasure, this classic variety belongs in every garden with space for plenty of colorful, long-lasting blooms.
