Echinacea purpurea 'Rubinstern'
Echinacea purpurea 'Rubinstern'
Description

A long flowering variety producing a profusion of ruby-pink flowers from mid-summer to early fall; a vigorous grower with sturdy stems, it really stands out in the late summer garden

Ornamental Features

Ruby Star™ Coneflower has masses of beautiful lightly-scented crimson daisy flowers with brown eyes at the ends of the stems from mid summer to mid fall, which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its pointy leaves remain green in color throughout the season.

Planting & Growing

Ruby Star™ Coneflower will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity extending to 3 feet tall with the flowers, with a spread of 24 inches. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As an herbaceous perennial, this plant will usually die back to the crown each winter, and will regrow from the base each spring. Be careful not to disturb the crown in late winter when it may not be readily seen!
