‘Sunrise’ Coneflower is another perennial that is perfect for a summer cutting garden.
As the name it implies, it has soft citron yellow flowers that are up to 5 inches across with a pretty fragrance.
As with the ‘Ruby Giant’ Coneflower above, cutting back the stems will encourage further blooms and reduce self-seeding.
It grows in all kinds of soil, is heat and humidity tolerant, and is deer and drought resistant. In fact, it will become leggy if you fertilize it too much.
