Echinacea purpurea ‘Magnus’ is a classic purple coneflower. Its flowers produce fragrant rose-pink petals that surround a reddish brown central cone forming flat flower heads. The newer blooms are more intense in color and then they fade to pale rose as they age. This makes for a ‘bi-color” effect. ‘Magnus’ is noted for its large daisy-like flowers. They appear mid-summer and long through the fall. Echinacea purpurea is native to most areas of the United States.
