Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus' is an outstanding 'Cone Flower', distinguished by the warm bright colour of its exceptionally large flowers. The slender elegance and formality of its petals give it a style that will add class to larger flower arrangements. In the border it is no less valuable on account of its robust strong stems and general vigour which give 'Magnus' good wind and weather resistance. Flower in their first season from an early sowing. Flowers mid summer to winter. Height 1m (36 inches).
