We looked at a lot of purple coneflower options, but ended up with Purple Emperor due to it's large purple flowers and tidy foliage. What's in a name? Maybe a lot with this cultivar as the rings of purple flowers around each cone might really 'rule them all'. But enough with my nerdy references, we think you'll enjoy the contrast of the deep green foliage in this flower with the magenta purple flowers. It's compact with strong stems, so the flowers won't droop, but it's tall enough at 16 to 18 inches to make it useable in the front, middle or back of a garden bed depending on the companion plants.

Coneflower, also known as echinacea, is a wonderful perennial native to the U.S. midwest and prairies. It does best in a light loamy soil, but will do well in any well-drained soil. Full sunlight and heat are best for full flowering, while they can tolerate some light shade, we recommend at least 6 hours of full sun each and every day. Once established they are very drought resistant making them a great plant for those looking for a low water/ low maintenance garden. As a perennial flower, if cared for correctly echinacea will return with new growth each year.

Have to wait and see....

Can't give a review cause it hasn't bloomed yet! As to the plant itself, I felt it was a little small for the price and I'm worried that it didn't seem to have many roots - like it was just planted. We'll see how it grows - I'm keeping it watered.
