This native flower is an essential addition to any garden or landscape. With its long green stem complimented at the top by a bright white flower, beauty will never be far away. The contrast that the center of the flower adds to the overall aesthetic gives this perennial a sense of maturity, and old-time charm. This flower will be one that’s cherished every summer by both your own household, and by pollinators everywhere. 

The Happy Star Coneflower is an important addition to the garden for the sake of the garden’s ecosystem. The coneflower is native and beloved by native bees and butterflies. Songbirds and hummingbirds are also a popular sighting with this flower in the landscape. Deer resistant, and very fragrant, you simply can’t go wrong planting this perennial flower in the garden. It can be used in borders, along fencing, even in containers. It’s perfect as a cut flower in bouquets rivaling the annual daisy.

Happy Star Coneflower Care

This perennial plant thrives in hardiness zones three through eight, making it very hardy. It can tolerate either full or partial sun. This coneflower prefers moist, well drained soil but also thrives in dry soil as well. This is due to its drought tolerant nature. It does enjoy an average amount of water, so best if possible to water after a long dry stretch is observed. 

If you don’t wish for the plant to reseed, flower heads will need to be cut back in the fall. Flowers can be removed to prolong blooming. 

Happy Star Coneflower Spacing

The Happy Star Coneflower is tall in nature, growing 36 to 48 inches high. It reseeds easily, so should be spaced 18 to 24 inches apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

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. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

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.
