Butter Pecan Coneflower is a fantastic introduction to the Double Coded™ Series. The fully double flowers start a rich golden yellow, which matures to a pastel yellow. The long-lasting flowers are a must for adding to a pollinator garden or the edges of a rain garden. The sturdy and compact size of the Double Coded™ series seldomly needs staking, and withstands wind and rain marvelously.

Double Coded™ Coneflowers grow equally well in a garden bed and container and are great for small decks and patios. Pair this luscious yellow with other hot-colored perennials for a late-summer container with attitude. The deep green foliage will set off colorful plants such as coral bells and salvia and will last well into the fall. Coneflowers are resistant to deer browsing and slug and snail damage. The root systems are highly drought resistant and can grow in locations with poor nutrition, such as new housing developments.

Double Coded™ Butter Pecan Coneflower Care

Plant coneflowers in a location with full sun and well-draining soil. Amend heavy clay soil with compost to lighten the texture and improve drainage. Use a mulch of organic material to conserve moisture in the soil and gradually feed the root system as the material decomposes. Apply this mulch in the spring as the new growth is sprouting. Water the plants well during the first season, allowing one inch of water per week. Water deeply approximately 2-3 times a week. This will force the roots to grow deeper in the ground and be more drought tolerant.  

Coneflowers are herbaceous perennials that go into a state of dormancy for the winter. The top growth dies back all the way to the ground, and new growth emerges from growing points under the soil in the early spring. Deadheading and pruning are not typically needed for Echinacea during the growing season. You can tidy up the spent top growth in the spring. The spent growth protects and insulates the growing points, and the seedheads feed wildlife in the garden during the winter. 

Double Coded™ Butter Pecan Coneflower Spacing

The sturdy and solid shape of Butter Pecan has a mature height of 18-20 inches and a width of 16-18 inches. Space plants so that adequate air circulation is available. A spacing of 18 inches between plants is ideal when planting into a garden bed. Grow coneflowers in a container with a diameter of at least 12 inches and a capacity of more than 2 gallons to give their deep taproots room to spread.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
