A tanager is a type of bird that comes in an array of colors, but most often associated with a brilliant orange red-the perfect namesake for this dramatically colored coneflower. 3½", rich tangerine orange flowers with heavily overlapping petals and dark cones is produced on dark stems above dark foliage. Noted for its incredible basal branching.
Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
Coneflowers like it sunny and hot. Though they will tolerate light shade, fewer flowers will be produced, and the plants will be weakened. Light, loamy soils are best, but coneflowers will grow in any well-drained soil. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant. If properly cared for, they will form attractive colonies and will live for many years.
