Description Briscoe's Tips
Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus'

Echinacea 'Magnus' is a wonderful workhorse perennial in the garden with its daisy-like purple blooms with raised, conical centers! We also grow regular Echinacea Purple Coneflowers.

As hardy as it is beautiful, this flowering herb is very self sufficient. Drought resistant once established, it prefers loamy, well drained soil and will grow well in full or partial sun. Echinacea self sows vigorously, and will reproduce quickly under the right conditions. A big hit with bees, butterflies and birds, these purple blooms will bring droves of natural pollinators to your garden. To control its spread, deadhead the fading flowers before they go to seed, but if you would like to attract lots of native wildlife, leave the seeds for the goldfinches and other seed eating birds.

Traditionally used in Native American medicine, Echinacea is still modernly used to boost the immune system, as well as for its antidepressant properties. A beautiful medicinal herb, it can be taken in tea form or by extracting its healthful oils.

Though deer resistant, beware of slugs and Japanese beetles who love to prey on this lovely plant. Plant with other wonderful Fall flowers like Russian Sage and Rudbeckias for a stunning display of color!

Uses: Echinacea is a beautiful medicinal herb and ornamental perennial! A magnet for native pollinators, this "cone flower" also makes a great cut flower for bouquets and arrangements.

: Don't overwater! Like most herbs, Echinacea doesn't need much water once it's established. Over watering will encourage root rot and possibly kill the plant. Susceptible to slugs and Japanese beetles.

Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus' January 9, 2015
Reviewer: Cindy McDaniel from Raleigh, NC United States  
Nice size plant; never grew it before so not sure if the leaves should have been copper upon arrival. Planted it immediately and will see what happens in spring. One leaf was green, the rest copper colored.
