Echinacea purpurea ‘White Swan’

About This Species

Zone 3a

Grow me instead of Oxeye daisy

White swan coneflower is a white-petaled, sturdy coneflower choice resembling a classic daisy. It is very attractive to pollinators and blooms all summer with deadheading. This plant will form clumps growing to 1 m tall and 0.5 m spread. Its flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies and the resulting seed heads in late summer and fall are food for native bird species.

When selecting non-invasive plants for your garden, be sure to look for those that are suitable for your location, including moisture requirements, hardiness zone, and avoidance of known bear attractants among other factors.
