Echinacea will attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bees & ladybugs. These beautiful, heirloom flowers have been used in flower gardens & borders for decades.
Grown as a perennial flowering plant, the Echinacea will establish a deep root system in the first year of growth. After the temperature drops with the first frost, the plant life above will wilt, leaving its roots to remain alive and dormant until the following growing season, when it will emerge again. Echinacea’s are a perfect choice for borders and will look great along driveways, fences and next to a garage or front entrance to your home. The flowers bloom throughout the summer months and require little care.
Echinacea Purpurea is not only a beautiful wildflower for your flower garden & borders, it is also a very versatile herb as well.
