Coneflowers are classic, timeless perennials. With their cheerful, daisy-like flowers and tough constitutions, they fit perfectly into any garden. If you've been plagued by drought you'll love Coneflowers even more. Once established, they can withstand the occasional dry spell with ease. They make outstanding cut flowers, too, and when fall rolls around, their cones (the center of the flower that's left behind after the petals fall) are an added decorative bonus. They're bee-friendly and deer-resistant, too!
Coneflowers fall into two groups--those in the genus Echinacea and those in the genus Rudbeckia. We offer a wide selection of each group, from warm pink to the brightest of golds. All of them can be started from seed with great success. Start them indoors early enough in spring and you may get flowers the first year
