The upturned petals are a nice contrast to the usual straight or downturned petals of other coneflowers. Very attractive to butterflies, and leave the seed heads on the plant to attract goldfinches. Very reliable, floriferous variety that reblooms, even without deadheading. Adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions and climates, and is known for being tolerant of drought, heat, and humidity. Add to a sunny border, meadow, native garden, or plant in mass for a big splash of summer color. Makes a very nice addition to a fresh flower arrangement.
