Growing Calendar for Echinacea 'Orange Bi-Colour' Plants x3
Delivery: Late April to Late May
Add coneflower Echinacea Orange Bi-colour to your garden or plot, attractive perennial flowers returning summer after summer, giving you lovely open blooms of petals in sunset shades of pink, orange and ruby-red. The centre of your flowers resemble fluffy door knobs and bring in beneficial pollinators like bees and hoverflies.
This coneflower variety looks great planted in the middle of a container as a focal point. Either position three young specimens in one 30cm (12in) diameter container or plant one in the centre of a container and surround it by edging bedding in hot colours like begonias, geraniums, gazanias and many more varieties in our Marshalls range.
As your coneflowers plants come into bloom in summer they become a magnet to much-loved British insects like honey-bees that stick around to pollinate the flowers of tomatoes, beans and tree blossom.
Get some sharp secateurs and cut some of the flowers for vases or bouquets for your home.
Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
