This Echinacea hybrid blooms from summer through fall.
Pollinators enjoy the lovely flowers. This deer-resistant coneflower is a good addition if you’ve struggled with foraging animals. The DOUBLE DIPPED™ Watermelon Sugar Coneflower is versatile and can be featured in a border, mixed bed, mass planting, or container. Snip the flowers to use in fresh or dried arrangements. This charming plant grows as a perennial in zones 4 through 8.
DOUBLE DIPPED™ Watermelon Sugar Coneflower Care
This charming coneflower can handle some shade but grows best in full sun. Plant it in fertile, moist soil that is well drained. New plants need regular water, but established plants are drought tolerant and only need water during a dry period to support flower growth. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the spring or a layer of organic mulch.
Remove spent flowers to extend the bloom cycle. Trim growth to ground level in the fall or leave it in place so birds can eat the seeds.
DOUBLE DIPPED™ Watermelon Sugar Coneflower Spacing
The DOUBLE DIPPED™ Watermelon Sugar Coneflower is 22 to 26 inches tall and 20 to 24 inches wide. Space plants 20 to 24 inches apart when creating a dense planting.
