Magnus' produces large purple-pink blooms that are held horizontally on robust stems of dark green foliage. It blooms over a long period, from June to September. Like other echinaceas, it is easy to grow in any decent soil. Its sturdy nature means that it doesn't need the staking and general fussing-over that some other perennials require. Echinaceas have enjoyed a surge in popularity in recent years, thanks in part to the trend for naturalistic prairie-style planting schemes.

I planted 6 mature Echinacea purpurea last summer. They have simply disappeared!! My garden is south facing, very dry with sandy soil, which I thought was perfect for this plant. Is it possible the slugs/snails have eaten the new shoots?? How can I protect these plants from snails? Can anyone help? I would like to try again. Pam3
