Plant Features

Purpurea Echinacea, commonly called purple coneflower, produces large purple flowerheads with reddish-brown cones. It is simply striking when in full bloom! Cutting the spent flowers provides for a rebloom. Plants perform best in full sun with well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established. Purple coneflowers are adored by butterflies, bees, and seed-eating wild birds, while the deer and rabbits tend to avoid it! Purple coneflower is a versatile plant that is sure to bring both beauty to your garden.

Really nice except for one of them

All my perennials from Grow joy have been the largest and healthiest I have ever received from any mail order company. One of them in this order was not in the best of shapes but that was due to the way the box was handled by the shipper. Still, I’m sure it will survive.

It's hard to find a review on this site regarding plant performance. I think we all agree that GrowJoy ships plants with care and they mostly arrive in good condition. I wanted to wait and review a plant that has been established for at least a year so the buyer knows what to expect from a perennial. I bought three of these last spring. They did so so last year. This year only two came back but they came back beautifully. The are blooming profusely and the bees and butterflies are delighted!
