SunSeekers is a coneflower series comprising of many flowers colours, all of which are stunning, rich, and non-fading. Plants have exceptional vigour and dense habit. Ray florets are usually shorter and in case of this variety called SUNSEEKERS Orange they are coloured like a sunset after a hot and sunny day – a few shades of dark orange, scarlet red, and rich red. All this topped with a large, reddish brown cone in the centre. SunSeekers coneflowers have strong and rather short stems with dark green, narrowly lanceolate leaves. Bred by Jelle van den Haak from the Netherlands in 2012, and patented as PP28824 in 2017.

Flowering begins in early July and continues until early autumn. If you have seedlings you can expect flowers from the first year. They attract butterflies, bumble bees, and bees, too, can find a way to suck some nectar from them. Regular deadheading will promote formation of new buds and flowers.

The plant is usually trouble-free and resistant, just be careful if slugs are present in your garden. Since coneflowers emerge quite late, often when slugs are already in their lethal strength, they could gobble up newly emerging foliage totally and thus destroy the plant before it even comes out.

Coneflower will tolerate almost any soil type but boggy. It loves full sun. It is suitable for mixed borders with perennials, or can be used as a flowering feature among low shrubs and conifers, and looks lovely when planted in a mass in a container on patios and balconies. Fully hardy to min -34°C (USDA zone 4).
