Coneflowers are red-hot right now, and there are dozens of varieties you can try, but this one is truly special. Evening Glow Coneflower distinguishes itself with a rusty-red “cone” and horizontal petals that start out bubblegum-pink at the base, change to creamy yellow at the tips, and show hints of apricot in between. The sunset colors are sublime! Evening Glow is a strong, sturdy plant that holds itself with a dignified air. Let it be the star of your sunny summer beds and borders, where it will bloom for weeks on end. Beautiful.

The Story

Coneflowers are undergoing a revolution. It all began with Purple Coneflower, a cherished Wildflower Spirit native to the Midwest, Southeast, and Southern Plains. This beloved prairie plant was once used medicinally by American Indians, and you will still find it today on drug store and supermarket shelves under its Latin name, Echinacea, as a supplement for treating colds. Although Coneflowers are All-American Spirits, they’ve captured the hearts of gardeners and nurserypeople all over the globe. Evening Glow Coneflower was developed in the Netherlands by a plantsman named Dionysius F. M. de Bont. He selected the lucky find from a crop of seedlings grown from mixed Coneflowers at his nursery. It was released in the U.S. in 2013.

The Details

Plant some extra Evening Glow Coneflowers, so you’ll have plenty for bouquets for the table all summer. The lightly fragrant blossoms are superb for cut arrangements. Make any room in your home more cozy and inviting with fresh-cut flowers from the garden!

How to Grow

For best results, plant Evening Glow Coneflower in a sunny site or in a spot that receives shade only during the hottest part of the day. The soil should be of medium fertility and must drain freely. Cold, boggy soil in winter is not its friend. Deadheading spent flowers will keep plants looking their freshest, but the seedheads do provide winter interest, so leave them alone to enjoy four-season beauty. Cut old stems down before new growth appears in spring. Coneflowers love heat and are slow to emerge, so be patient.
