Echinacea purpurea | Purple Coneflower


Magnus (pink)
White Swan (white)

Echinacea purpurea (aka purple coneflower) is an extremely popular native plant that's beloved by birds, butterflies, and other pollinators. It does a fabulous job of filling in where it's planted, so make sure it's planted somewhere that you wouldn't mind seeing a few more of them. 

Fun random fact: see the spiky seedhead in the middle of the flower? The botanical name Echinacea comes from echino - the Greek word for hedgehog. If you're ever on Jeopardy and that helps you, you're welcome!

Blooms: late spring to early fall
Height: varies by cultivar, 2-5 ft
Spread: 1-3 ft
LOVES full sun, partial sun ok. Shade is disappointing. 

Echinacea purpurea is available in #1 containers
