About Echinacea purpurea ‘Magnus’: This is a selection of our most popular native North American wildflower with larger, more vibrantly colored flowers than the species. From a central brown cone the rose-pink petals are held flat, rather than drooping like the species. Coneflowers bloom in summer and fall , forming a showy, upright clump which is a favourite feeding station for many butterflies. Seed heads are useful in dried arrangements. Plants may be easily divided in early spring. Self-sown plants can also be moved at that time. Excellent for cutting. Selected as Perennial Plant of the Year in 1998. Grows to 28 to 36 inches tall and spreads 18 to 24 inches wide. Zones 3 to 9.
