Coneflowers remain ever popular and for good reason with their bold distinctive silhouettes and flowers that attract bees and butterflies in their droves.  'Parrot' is a very striking recent introduction with large vibrant two tone blooms, each single flower formed of bright yellow petals deeply suffused with orangey-red at their base encircling a bold copper cone.  This richness continues into the lush green foliage.   

Reminiscent of a rocket ice lolly, showcase its dazzling colour in a sunny container or pride of place at the front of a border, where it will flower freely from mid summer into early autumn.  To get the best results, plant it in full sun in a moist but free draining soil.
