With their distinctive cone shape and drooping petals, coneflowers are an integral part of any wildflower garden. Also popular with butterflies, their shape makes for easy access to nectar and a sturdy landing pad for larger butterflies. This collection is curated with 5 coneflower varieties with different colours, heights and bloom periods.
Note: with the exception of prairie coneflower, all varieties in this collection require moist stratification for germination. See instructions below.
Cold, moist stratification required. Mix seeds with moist substrate (vermiculite, perlite or moss) and place in a plastic bag and refrigerate for 6-8 weeks. Sow seed at 1/8 inch depth. Do not let seedling dry out while it is establishing.
Sow directly outdoors in late fall to overwinter.
