The happiest spot in your home might not even be in your home at all.
Anyone else prefer an afternoon relaxing in the garden instead of the couch?
Especially if I’m staring at stunning solar lights. Not just any solar lights, mind you, but Desert Steel solar lights. Solar lights which are just are pretty during the day as at night.
These indigo beauties are 24/7 coneflower solar light glam! Nothing beats relaxing in the garden with solar lights at dusk.
I probably shouldn’t admit that the Indigo Coneflower solar lights are my absolute favorite solar light that Desert Steel makes.
The thrill of outdoor living with Desert Steel!

Why coneflowers for the perennial bed?
Desert Steel always uses the “right” type of flower in the “right” color.
Coneflowers are a pollinators paradise. A must-have for any perennial bed if you desire to attract monarchs, painted ladies and swallowtails who feed on the sweet nectar. Birds and bees also enjoy a lovely coneflower!
Coneflowers are native to the United States and grow well in zones 3-8. Truly, a non-fussy flower that doesn’t require fertilizer and isn’t bothered by pests.
A spot in the sun, regular watering and well-drained soil and your coneflowers are certain to survive.
And who doesn’t delight in that “cone shaped” center? Even more so when the center is an all bright light!
An indigo solar light non-the-less! Indigo is a color that appeals to all, does it not? Could there be a better shade of blue hue? Resounding no!!!
That’s why your yard is going to be thrilled with the addition of these three metal solar lights from the illustrious Desert Steel.
How bright do you want your solar lights?
Solar lights are fairly predictable.
The range on brightness runs the gamut so to speak. Some are tinged with yellow and go all the way to a super white brightness.
The spectrum varies greatly.
Desert Steel lights run on the end of white brightness, one aspect I appreciate the most about these Indigo Blue solar lights.
And they really last 10 hours strong if they get that 6 hour charge time. So they function just as well as they look. Beautiful. Effortlessly beautiful.
Mindless decorating. Once you take them out of the box and flip the on switch, your work is done.
Unless you can’t decide where to place them!
Then ask a neighbor, friend or your mom. But oh so portable. Since you literally just stake them into the ground, feel free to “uproot” these “plants” with zero guilt.

A note on height…..
I get it. Coneflowers are a very tall flower. These coneflower solar lights are on the shorter side.
I strongly suspect the design reflects keeping the light on a path or walkway and not in mid-air.
But if you desire tall coneflowers, I suggest you check out their coneflower bird feeders. You will absolutely love them and they are tall like traditional coneflowers.
But all Desert Steel coneflower art whether it be a solar light or bird feeder is made of metal. Metal for the ages. Metal petals that look and act like “real” petals on a coneflower.
It’s the thrill of outdoor decorating at its best! Another suggestion is grouping Desert Steel solar lights. I highly recommend purchasing their solar lights in groupings of 3 and 5.
Always an odd number if possible. Even number of groupings always strike me as “off” and “not quite right” so please, go for odd!
But three or five coneflower solar lights dancing down your garden path? Hello happiness! All-year long, too as these blooms will never fade or die.
Final illuminating thoughts…..
Solar lights are amazing. What else can I say? The more you have…. the more you want.
But Desert Steel are the peaches in your cream. They rise to the top! Well-made out of sheets of steel right here in Kansas!
So it bears worth repeating that when you purchase from Desert Steel, you are supporting a local USA based company.
Besides, it’s that time of year when your “real” plants have died. I don’t dare post a picture of my hanging pot.
Oh wait…I can’t because I already composted it. It was that dead! Oops. Lack of water will do that to a pot of petunias.
But Desert Steel flowers never fade, rust or die. They look fabulous sun-up to the darkest of nights. Best of all, no water or fertilizer is required!
Maybe that’s the way to go with flowers? The safe Desert Steel way. And their customer service? Mind-blowing! I hope you win this set-of-three indigo coneflower solar lights!
