The beautiful Echinacea Prairie Splendor is a compact coneflower that features very pretty bright rose-magenta rays surrounding a dark orange centre cone. It typically grows in a clump to about 60cm in height and by about the same in width with flower stems that stand proud above the foliage. Prairie Splendor will often bloom from late spring/early summer which is normally a couple of weeks earlier than most echinaceas. They normally flower right through to the end of late summer with the additional sporadic bloom until the first frost. Each flower is about 10-12cm in diameter and features downward-arching rose-magenta rays. Our photos show you the beautiful shades that the buds go through before opening into full splendor.
Echinaceas like well drained soil and actually do not mind a dry to medium moisture position and will grow in full sun and even partial shade. They are tolerant of drought, heat and humidity once established and will also cope on poor soil. Clumps over time can become crowded do divide every few years to ensure that they continue to flower well. Often the plants will re-flower without deadheading. Plants may self sow if seed-heads are left. An excellent cut flower and they are also very attractive dried.
