A remarkable hybrid Coneflower that comes close to producing flowers in near-red. The flowers are large, single and fragrant with petals a deep magenta-red surrounding a dark cone. As the flowers mature, they fade to an attractive smoky-rose. Plants are strong and bushy in habit with near-black stems. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Attractive to butterflies and excellent for cutting. Coneflowers begin blooming in midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. Leaving some spent flowers on the plant in the fall will provide food for wintering birds. Dried seed heads also add interest to the winter garden.
