Yellow Coneflower

Echinacea paradoxa

The Yellow Coneflower is unique to the Ozarks. It boasts attractive plants with smooth leaves on stout stems up to three feet in height. The flower heads are single on long stalks with drooping, yellow petals around a broad, brown, conical seedhead with yellow stamens. Naturally occurs on glades and prairies, this plant is very drought tolerant. Birds love to eat the dried seeds, so use this and other seed-abundant plants to create living birdfeeders.
