More Information

Description Create a dazzling summertime display with ‘Purple Emperor’ (Echinacea hybrid). This tidy coneflower keeps its good looks all summer long with no straggly stems in sight, just sturdy stems and big saturated blooms. Coneflowers are a garden staple for a reason; their cheery fragrant flowers are beloved by pollinators and remarkably easy to care for. ‘Purple Emperor’ boasts a summery shade of magenta. Not quite purple, but still very eyecatching, especially when planted as a border or in masses. This sun-loving perennial is the perfect way to add low-maintenance color to your garden. Details Botanical name: Echinacea x 'Purple Emperor'
Patent #: USPP 24,459
Common name: Coneflower
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 14-18" x 12-16"
Flower color: Magenta
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Border, cottage gardening, massing, naturalizing, specimen, wildflower.
How To Grow Soil: Any well-drained soil will do.
Light: Full sun. Plant them in a spot that gets at least 6 hours of full sun a day. If planted in too much shade, plants may flop or strain to reach the sun.
Water: Average. Water regularly the first season to encourage good root growth. Though coneflowers handle heat and dry conditions well once established, they appreciate regular watering and flower more if they are not stressed.
Spacing: 16 - 22 inches
Fertilizing: Little needed. Over fertilizing will cause spindly growth, so once in the spring with a granular garden fertilizer is more than sufficient.
Winterizing: Avoid damp spots. Do not heap mulching over crowns in winter, as this can cause rot. Leave the foliage and old flowers standing for winter (birds enjoy the seed heads), then trim back or remove spent foliage in early spring before new growth emerges.
Maintenance & Pruning: Once planted, they are best left alone, as they do not transplant well. Deadheading (snipping off the spent blooms) is not necessary but does increase new flower production.

purple emperor coneflowers

The flowers looked nothing like the coneflowers online at your website. Their flowers when they bloomed were anemic looking.
