You and butterflies can both enjoy the flowers of the Magnus Purple Coneflower from July through September. Narrow petals are a lavender hue and surround a central cone that Echinacea is known for. The flowers bloom on the ends of tall stems and feature dark green foliage. Pollinators love the nectar when the flowers are blooming, and birds will stop by when the flowers fade and go to seed.
This plant has a clump-forming, mounded, upright growth habit. Plant the Magnus Purple Coneflower in beds, borders, or mass plantings. Include in a butterfly garden or any area that needs splashy color and texture. Trim the tall stems and include the flowers in arrangements. The Magnus Purple Coneflower is low-maintenance and grows as a perennial in USDA zones 3 through 8.
Magnus Purple Coneflower Care
Coneflowers are adaptable and drought-tolerant but will thrive in ideal conditions. Plant this beauty in full sun to partial shade. Soil should be fertile, moist, and allow good drainage. Water weekly or wait until the top few inches of soil dry out. Coneflowers are not heavy feeders, but apply a balanced fertilizer in the spring to encourage plenty of growth.
Remove spent flowers to keep the plant looking tidy and promote more blooms. Trim the growth back in the late fall or early spring. Divide the plant as needed every few years.
Magnus Purple Coneflower Spacing
This Echinacea will grow 36 inches tall and spread 18 to 24 inches wide. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart for a full and leafy look.
