The very best in British grown plants
Description - The striking flower heads of the coneflower are attractive to butterflies and bees. Purple daisey-like peteals surround a central disk. A deciduous, clump forming plant, it prefers a position in the sun. Soil should be humous rich and well drained. Flowering from spring through to summer. Useful for cut flowers. Seed heads can be left to provide winter food for birds. This Perennial plant is also in our award-winning Kind to Nature collection. It is now widely accepted that gardens are vital for the survival of the UK’s wildlife. Gardens make up the majority of the green space in Britain and make significant contribution to the conservation of wildlife. Pollen and nectar rich plants are attractive to many species of insect. Pollen provides a source of protein needed for insect egg production and nectar is a valuable source of carbohydrates needed for energy. Plant your flowers in groups because en masse colour and scent is easier for insects to detect.
