Purple Coneflower is a coarse, hairy native perennial with an upright clumping habit with strong stems that do not need staking.  The dark green foliage is broadly lance-shaped.  Purple Coneflower has showy daisy-like purple coneflowers with downward arching petals with an orange center cone that 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!
