Twilight Coneflower - Echinacea Big Sky™ 'Twilight'

'Twilight' is a hybrid coneflower in the Big Sky Series from Itsaul Nurseries in Atlanta, Georgia. It is an upright, free branching perennial that typically grows in a clump on sturdy stems that do not need staking. It is noted for its large, sweetly-fragrant coneflowers featuring downward arching deep rose-pink rays encircling a dark, burgundy-red center cone. Flowers bloom from late spring to later summer, sometimes with additional sporadic bloom until frost. Good fresh cut or dried flower. The dead flower stems will remain erect well into the winter, and if flower heads are not removed, the blackened cones are often visited by goldfinches that feed on the seeds. U. S. Plant Patent PP17,651.

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 4 years). Plants usually rebloom without deadheading, however prompt removal of spent flowers improves general appearance.
