"Magnus" is a distinctive, vigorous and large growing cone flower cultivar. The bright reddish-pink petals of its huge flowers are held flat as they radiate out from the cone, instead of curving backwards as is typical of most coneflowers.
Tips For Growing Echinacea (Purple Coneflower)
This genus is invaluable for the mid- to late-summer garden, bringing color into our plantings when many spring bloomers have gone green for the season. They are native to the eastern half of the U.S. and are most commonly found growing in prairie habitats.
Echinacea thrive in our gardens when provided with well drained soils, plenty of sunshine and moderate to dry moisture conditions depending on the species and cultivars. Healthy individual coneflowers will grow in the garden for 3 to 5 years. Species and cultivars raised from seed will often reseed themselves to continue their presence in our gardens.
'Rocky Top Hybrid' echinacea, while xeric, appreciates extra moisture provided by some easily accomplished water harvesting techniques. Plant it in a wide, shallow depression and mulch amply or place right up against the north side of a low, wide rock, tilted to shed water on the Echinacea's side.
Fall Care: You can leave the dried seed heads for winter, as they provide food for birds. Echinacea easily reseeds itself. You can cut back seed heads in the fall, where you don't wish the plant to reseed. Spring Care: Cut back the dry stalks to the crowns of the plant in early spring. Pull any unwanted seedlings in spring. They are easy to pull when young.

Love this flower and so do the pollenators!!
By Rockin Roxy
from Western Colorado
I replaced 95% of my front lawn with flowers, grasses, shrubs and trees. This cone flower is beautiful and brings brightness to the garden. I have tried to combine plants & trees that are totally bee, butterfly and bird friendly and Magnus fits the bill wonderfully. Extremely easy to grow, looks good in and out of bloom and it's low maintenance to boot. Just be sure it has enough sun and you're good to go. Love, love, love High Country Gardens and American Meadows!

Did well. Anxious to see how it overwinters as I've had troubles getting cone flowers established here.
