Echinacea Yellow Coneflower Seeds

Echinacea Yellow Coneflower Seeds

Echinacea paradoxa

Item #1805

Perennial. The yellow coneflower is an uncommon find in this popular group of perennials. Long-lived, they grow in a wide range of sites and fit perfectly in perennial borders, wildflower and native gardens. Plants have a long, deep taproot so they tolerate dry conditions once established. Butterflies feed on the nectar during flowering, while finches and other birds love the seed heads that remain on the plant through the winter.
