Forming dense, upright clumps, these long-lasting flowers and sturdy stems are fantastic for your bouquets and floral arrangements, as well as provide the perfect landing pads for hungry bees, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators.

Tips For Care

Fantastic full sun herbaceous perennials, these upright mounds shine in as much sun as you can provide for them. Favoring morning sun that helps dry their leaves and prevents powdery mildew.

Once established, these are low water usage plants, so include these sun lovers into your Xeric and Fire-scaping, prairie plantings and those difficult, out-of-the-way locations that won’t receive much water or attention.

Hardy in USDA growing zones 5 through 10, these have the native hardiness that both their lineages boast and thrive in an incredibly wide range of conditions. Plant in moderately fertile, very well-drained soil and watch these go!

Deadhead to keep the blooms returning until frost, then prune back the entire plant to the ground in late autumn. Otherwise, Echibeckia needs little care and attention! Naturally compact plants and drought-tolerant, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of perennial Echinacea and Rudbeckia, with the hardiness and low maintenance of both!

Combining the native hardiness, prolific bloom, plus a fantastic combination of colors for autumn, these bird and pollinator-friendly blooms light up the landscape!
