Rather than just refilling the bird feeder, think about cultivating a garden rich in bird-attracting plants, beginning with the planting of this Giant Coneflower. It excels in mass plantings, serves well as a back-of-the-border perennial, and thrives in moist open spaces.
Optimal conditions for this plant include high water consumption, a preference for soil ranging from average to moist, and a requirement for full sun exposure.
