Purple Cone Flower

Item added to cart!

 Purple Coneflower is a vibrant purple native perennial  that adds height and color to any victory garden.  Its dark green foliage emerges mid-spring on upright strong stems that do not need staking. The showy daisy-like purple coneflowers with downward arching petals with an orange center cone blooms throughout summer.

The long lasting flowers are a nectar favorite and attract several butterflies and bees, while spent stems will stay erect and attract birds.

Although it blooms in summer, echinacea is a great ally during cold and flu season. The fresh root is indicated for virus and infection, internally and topically. The flowers are also edible and make for a vibrant salad! *
