Echinacea purpurea Magnus Superior is a radiant addition to any garden with its strikingly bold and giant, rosy-purple flowers. Unlike the typical coneflower, Magnus Superior features petals that are held out flat, creating a distinctive and eye-catching display. As an early flowerer, this compact variety ensures a garden is alive with vibrant colours from early to late summer and even offers sporadic flowers until the frost sets in. Its versatility makes it perfect for perennial borders, small gardens and containers, providing a stunning visual impact wherever planted.

Native to North America and used for its medicinal properties, the Echinacea, or Coneflower, has been a garden staple for many years. Magnus, which was honoured as the Perennial Plant of the Year in 1998, grows up to 75-90 cm tall and 30-45 cm wide, thriving in full sun and well-drained soils. It is remarkably tolerant of drought, heat and humidity, making it a resilient choice for gardeners. This variety is not only excellent as cut flowers but also supports wildlife; if its flower heads are left in the autumn they attract birds that feed on the seeds. Spent flowers should be removed and stems cut back, so flowers can continue to appear. Propagation can be achieved through division in spring or autumn, or by root cuttings in late autumn to early winter, allowing the beauty to be multiplied and shared throughout the garden.
