Echinacea purpurea


('productnameshort')

Echinacea 'Magnus Superior' is an improved form of 'Magnus', the most popular coneflower of all time. This should be good!


Description:
'Magnus' is the most popular and strongest coneflower of all time and usually the Echinacea purpurea parent to many of the new hybrid cultivars. 'Magnus Superior' is an improved form of 'Magnus' (oh my!) with deeper pink blooms, darker stems, larger coppery orange cones, and a more consistent growth habit. Plants are well-branched, strong and bushy. Plant in full sun in average (not overly rich), well-drained soils. Avoid soils that are overly moist in winter.
