Ornamental Value

The Coneflower variety ‘Cleopatra’ is a favorite of our designer, Logan Alberts. The vibrant golden-yellow flowers dance over the green foliage on strong stems and bloom all summer from May to September. The tidy, upright plants play well with others whether mixed with other Coneflower varieties or plants like Salvia, Hydrangea, and ornamental grasses. And to drive it home, Coneflower also attract pollinators and are deer resistant. What’s not to love about this tried and true perennial? Don’t just plant one, for maximum impact plant a grouping of 5 or more!
