Add a vibrant pop of sunshine to your garden with this striking flower. Attract pollinating insects and birds. A hardy plant with rough leaves and long-lasting flowers that is easy to grow. Does well in a variety of soil types, including clay. Use it to accentuate your other native, sun-loving perennials such as Purple Coneflower and Cylindrical Blazing Star to achieve a beautiful colour combination. Prairie grasses would also pair well with the coneflower.
