Why plant Kim's Knee High™ Coneflower?
Short and sweet! A scaled-down version of our noble native Purple Coneflower, Kim’s Knee High Coneflower fits into any garden. This compact cutie has all that you love about the original—fun rosy-pink flowers that look like badminton shuttlecocks, nectar for butterflies and other pollinators, and seeds for goldfinches—but it never outgrows its space. Kim’s Knee High is also known for its incredible flower power. Plant in masse for maximum impact and wildlife benefit.
Coneflowers are undergoing a revolution. It all began with the Purple Coneflower, a cherished Wildflower Spirit native to the Midwest, Southeast, and Southern Plains. This beloved prairie plant was once used medicinally by American Indians, and you will still find it today on drug store and supermarket shelves under its Latin name, Echinacea, as a supplement for treating colds. Kim’s Knee High Coneflower was bred by Kim Hawks of Niche Gardens in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She patented the plant in 1999.
How to use Kim's Knee High™ Coneflower in the landscape?
Plant some extra Kim’s Knee High Coneflowers so you’ll have plenty for bouquets for the table all summer. The lightly fragrant blossoms are superb for cut arrangements. Make any room in your home more cozy and inviting with fresh-cut flowers from the garden!
Hardiness Zone: 4-9
How To Plant Kim's Knee High™ Coneflower
For best results, plant Kim’s Knee High Coneflower in a sunny site or in a spot that receives shade only during the hottest part of the day. The soil should be of medium fertility and must drain freely. Cold, boggy soil in winter is not its friend. Deadheading spent flowers will keep plants looking their freshest, but the seedheads do provide winter interest, so leave them alone to enjoy four-season beauty. Coneflowers love heat and are slow to emerge, so be patient.
How To Water
Water as soon as they arrive! Coneflowers need to be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil for proper establishment in the landscape.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
Trim the Kim's Knee High back after the first wave of summer blooms are spent, and you’ll be rewarded with another flush of flowers. Cut old stems down before new growth appears in spring.
