Description:

Unlike most coneflowers, Ruby Star's flower petals are held horizontally, not drooping. The bright purple-pink, daisy-like flowers on sturdy stems make great cut flowers. An ideal choice for adding color to sunny, waterwise borders and mixed containers. An herbaceous perennial.

Design Ideas: Coneflowers are ideal for the middle of the perennial border. They grow quickly to fill out foundation plantings and break up long fence lines. Particularly charming against split rail fences, they are a country garden staple. These plants are remarkably drought resistant which makes them compatible with many grasses for a mixed meadow or prairie composition. Their breeding also makes these prime cutting flowers. As North American natives they are great choices for meadow and wild garden perennial color.

Requires well-drained, fertile soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Remove spent blooms to prolong flowering season. Prune back old foliage and apply fertilizer in early spring before new growth emerges.
