This treasured, heirloom wildflower, native to the eastern U.S., is a long-lived perennial that blooms for a month or more beginning in midsummer. The pinkish-purple petals of the stunning, daisy-like flowers surround a large, dark brown cone. Petals begin to droop as the cone enlarges and fills with seeds, which attract birds in the fall and winter. Echinacea grows well in a variety of conditions, and is excellent for borders and water-wise gardens. Perfect for fresh cut flowers.

Very happy!

5 out of 5 stars Jan 27, 2021
I purchased these at a local store last spring and sowed a row of them. I had excellent germination and some beautiful foliage getting established toward the end of summer. We have a very short growing season with year round frost risk and multiple frosts last summer, yet they continued to grow. I probably got them in the ground a little late so I did not see any flowers, but I expect some beautiful blooms this coming season. I had been told these are difficult to germinate in our area so I am very pleased!
