PowWow Wild Berry Coneflower - Echinacea purpurea 'PowWow Wild Berry'

PowWow Wild Berry Coneflower has magenta purple flowers from late spring to late summer and sometimes reblooms in the fall. It grows in an upright clump on sturdy, well-branched stems that do not need staking. Great cut flower or dried flower. The dead flower stems will remain erect well into the winter, and if flower heads are not removed, the blackened cones may be visited by goldfinches or other birds that feed on the seeds. Echinacea comes from the Greek word echinos meaning hedgehog in reference to the spiny center cone found on most flowers in the genus.

Easily grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. This is an adaptable plant that is tolerant of drought, heat, humidity and poor soil. Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every four years). Plants rebloom well without deadheading, however prompt removal of spent flowers encourages continued bloom and improves general appearance.
