Beautiful, cone-shaped flowers attract dancing butterflies
Why Plant Echinacea?
This is the famous plains native perennial called Purple Coneflower, but better known today by its botanical name: Echinacea. With long-lasting flowers that attract birds, butterflies, and bees, Echinacea is easy to grow and makes excellent cut flowers. For years before it was a favorite of the herbal medicine industry, it was always one of the loveliest wildflowers on the plains.
