Echinacea Hot_Coral

 

 

We have a great new cone flower just up from our nursery at Griffins. A new series of Coneflower bred to produce well-branched, sturdy and compact plants featuring a high bud count. This selection produces very large, single flowers with hot, orange-red overlapping petals surrounding a large brown cone. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for cutting. Coneflowers begin blooming midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. However keeping some dried flower heads on the plants in fall will provide food for wintering song birds. Dried seed heads also add interest to the winter garden.

Garden Phlox

 

What garden can be complete without this wonderful perennial that comes up year after year without fail? A sturdy, upright habit phlox reaches 2 to 4 feet tall. In July and August, and through September with deadheading, it bears flowers in shades of white, coral, pink, red, lavender, and violet, depending on the cultivar. Some have a lighter or darker eye, and others have variegated leaves. Many of the cultivars are fragrant; scent is most noticeable at night.

It is great for the back of a border or in a large pot and would brighten up any patio or deck. Phlox loves fertile, moist soil and is very easy to grow. Clumps can be divided in autumn or spring and this rejuvenates the original clump and helps it to flower better.

It is the best known and latest-blooming phlox which attracts butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.
