Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus'

Magnus Coneflower

Echinacea pupurea 'Magnus' stands tall in the perennial garden.  Dark green leaves are 4"-8" long, serrated, coarse and hairy.  It is slow to emerge in the Spring but picks up speed once it turns hot.  Blooms are daisy like with Rose-pink petals circling a rust colored cone center.  Petals of the Magnus Coneflower are more horizontal and droop less than the species.  Blooms mid-Summer into Fall. They are 3"-4" wide on stems shooting up above the foliage.  Attracts butterflies and pollinators.  Makes an excellent cut flower.  Prefers average, well drained soil and will do well in poor soil.  Tolerant of heat and humidity, it is a tough perennial of the prairie gardens.  Performs best in Full Sun.  Can be leggy in Part Shade.  Mature height 2"-3', spread 1'-1.5'
