Supreme™ Cantaloupe Echinacea (Supreme Cantaloupe Coneflower) is a compact perennial that produces an abundance of large, fragrant, semi-double, fluffy flowers in a standout orange-melon shade that sit atop strong, non-bending stems. This beautiful pom pom coneflower grows well in moist to dry, well drained soils in full to part sun locations. It is perfect for prairie gardens, xeriscape gardens, pollinator gardens, cottage gardens, perennial borders, rock gardens or patio containers. It is gorgeous as a cut flower. Supreme Cantaloupe coneflowers will re-bloom without deadheading. Bees and butterflies are attracted to its nectar while songbirds enjoy the seed heads once they dry out. Deer tends to avoid these plants.
Echinacea Companion Plants: Achillea, Coreopsis, Delphinium, Geranium, Grasses, Hemerocallis, Monarda, Phlox
Supreme Cantaloupe Echinacea Plant Care Instructions: Only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Spent flowers should NOT be trimmed back if you want to attract songbirds as they enjoy the dried seed heads. Cut it back to the ground in late winter or early spring before the new growth starts. Spring is a good time to apply fertilizer for the year.
