Perennials

Echinacea purpurea 'Butterfly Kisses'

Coneflower

Echinacea purpurea ‘Butterfly Kisses’ has fragrant 3-inch double flowers with a bright pink pom-pom center surrounded by lighter pink ray flowers. ‘Butterfly Kisses’ is a compact cultivar that grows only 1 to 1.5 ft. tall and wide.


Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. Coneflowers are a butterfly magnet and an adaptable plant that is tolerant of drought, heat, humidity and poor soil. Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years). Plants usually rebloom without deadheading, however prompt removal of spent flowers improves general appearance. Freely self-seeds if at least some of the seed heads are left in place at the end of the season--the goldfinches will feast on them as well!
