It's hard to say enough about Giant Coneflower. It is one of my all time favorite perennials that I think should be in every Southern garden. Think of it as a Black-Eyed-Susan on steroids. Growing upwards to 5 or 6 feet tall, it's decked-out with huge powder blue leaves from which shoot up thick stalks adorned with giant sombrero-like flowerheads. Gardeners in England love this perennial but have trouble growing it because it doesn't get hot enough for it to do well there. Giant Coneflower's native range occurs in east Texas, parts of Louisiana, southern Arkansas and a few counties in southeast Oklahoma, its northern-most limit. This is where the genetics of the plants we offer began, making them the hardiest possible.
