Purple Coneflower

Echinacea purpurea

Purple Coneflower is a perennial favorite! Robust and drought-tolerant, this species is native to the midwestern and southeastern United States. Prefers full sun to partial shade in fertile, well-drained soils. Purple Coneflower produces abundant seeds and spreads easily. Birds love to eat the dried seeds, so use this and other seed-abundant plants to create living birdfeeders.
