$12.99

Perfect for Tennessee! Southeastern U.S. nativeEchinacea tennesseensis 'Rocky Top' offers the garden an abundance of pastel pink coneflowers with greenish-black cones on plants 2 to 3 feet tall and 1 foot wide. E. tennesseensis  was thought to be extinct in the 1960s, but was rediscovered and is now widely available as a garden plant. Enjoy the flutter of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees in the summer and as the seasons turn, the songbirds will enjoy the seeds of the spent blooms. Coneflowers are a staple plant to any sun-loving garden and can tolerate drought conditions. An easy to grow, native perennial.

Growth Habit

Standing 2-3' both tall and wide, Rocky Top is held up on sturdy, well branched stems with deep green foliage. The orange blooms start showing off in early summer and continue to bring joy all summer long.

Care

Coneflowers thrive in average soils or hot, dry conditions and shrug off cold. Blooms last well, cut or dried, and the seeds in the large cone at the heart of the flower head provide nourishment for birds. We recommend deadheading to increase your flower power. Best if grown in zones 3-9.

Toxicity

Deer resistant. Non-toxic to pets.
