In the heat of the summer when April showers and spring flowers are a footnote, that is when coneflowers begin. They are a hot season plant, and thrive in the hot sun after we have retreated indoors to our air conditioning. At Martin Garden Center, we sell numerous varieties but the tried and true most popular include the magnus (purple), the POW WOW series including white and wild berry and the cheyenne spirit (yellow, orange and red blooms). But we can’t help but bring in some of the amazingly colorful varieties to supplement these super performers. Can’t wait to see what we have this year.
Generally, Coneflowers bloom from summer to fall and don’t require a lot of maintenance. But, if you dead head spent blooms, you will receive more blooms.
