Echinacea 'Magnus' Plants

Echinacea purpurea

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, echinacea magnus, a 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. Magnus is 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.

Echinacea 'Magnus' Uses

Traditionally used in Native American medicine, Echinacea magnus 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!

Cone flower May 31, 2017
Reviewer: Josephine Harrison from Rocky Mount, NC United States  
Ordered 3. Opened and planted soon after delivery. 2 are thriving and 1 disappeared.  Maybe should have let them mature in a pot a little longer before planting in garden.

easy to grow! May 31, 2017
Reviewer: Caroline Jones from walkertown, NC United States  
We bought this plant last year and are all to happy to get another one this year. The blooms were picture perfect and our bees love it.  So far our new plant is growing healthy and strong. It promises to be every bit as beautiful as the one we bought from you before.

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.
