Persian Cornflower

Description
Enjoy loads of showy, pink-lavender, deeply fringed flowers from late spring to midsummer with this sun-loving, low-maintenance perennial. Butterflies love it. Persian Coneflower, also called knapweed, is easy to grow and its 2-3" flowers are a cheerful addition to the garden and cut floral arrangements. Its very dark green foliage makes the flowers pop. Growing 20-24" tall, Persian Cornflower is a lovely addition to perennial flowerbeds, cottage gardens, meadows and prairies. It grows best in full sun. To promote compact new growth, cut back flower stems after they bloom.

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.

Please note that we cannot ship outside of the 48 contiguous states.
