Vintage Wine is a perfect name for this coneflower. Its colour does look like good red wine when through crystal clear glass into the setting sun. Flowers are large and come out over a long period. This coneflower produces more and more stems year by year and makes a thicker clump with many profusion of flowers.

Coneflowers are maintenance-free perennials that have beautiful flowers in various colour shades from mid summer until early fall. They come out on sturdy stems that do not break in wind or heavy rain. Flowers attract butterflies and bumble bees. Lanceolate leaves grow from the ground and then up along the stems.

Coneflower will tolerate almost any soil type but boggy. It loves full sun. Deadheading will prolong flowering time. 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 about -40°C (USDA zone 3).
