There are many Echinacea species varieties available for commercial property landscapes, but the coneflower, which is commonly seen in purple, but also available in different colors, is the most popular among all. Not only do these flowers attract beautiful butterflies and bees, they’re a vibrant addition to your commercial property as well. They are sturdy flowers that flourish best under at least 5 hours of direct sunlight a day in neutral soil, making the cone flower a wonderful addition to your fall Landscape maintenance plan.




From spring to fall, the coreopsis flower, is a plant that is easy to maintain, whose red, purple, yellow, or orange flowers will attract stunning butterflies to almost any garden or landscape. Once it has finished flourishing, the seed heads will attract birds to your property, as well. Coreopsis still has the ability to grow well in less than ideal conditions— poor soil areas like roadsides, ditches and open fields where these flowers compete with other plants for nutrient resources. They prefer as much sunlight as possible.
