White coneflower is a perennial flower with white, daisy-like flowers. It was developed from the native eastern purple coneflower, selected for its white petals.
It has nice, green mounding leaves and sturdy flower stems. In mid-summer, large white flowers appear. They have large brown cones in the center.
White coneflower grows in some older parts of the Xeriscape Garden with little care or maintenance. It blooms every year and the birds enjoy the seed in fall and winter.
White coneflower can be a reliable garden perennial for moderate water zones in the Colorado Springs area.
White coneflower should be trimmed to the ground in early spring.After flowering, the central "cone" can be left to provide winter interest and seed for birds, if desired.
