A large and beautiful perennial featuring flower stalks reaching up to 7 ft. tall. Bright yellow daisies with raised central cones sit atop these elegant stems in summer and into fall. Deeply lobed, dark green leaves flank the stems and form a tall mat at their base. Over time this coneflower will spread to from a striking drift. Looks great with grasses, Joe Pye weed, and Verbena bonariensis. Coneflowers are excellent pollinator plants and birds love the seeds. Needs sun and regular to moderate irrigation. May need staking. This plant goes completely dormant in the winter, only to emerge with vigour in the spring. Deer resistant.
