An extremely popular species, Purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) shares common traits with other members of the echinacea wildflower family, including its spiny flower discs and value as a medicinal herb. Its rich amethyst hue is pleasing to the eye, and it also attracts pollinators like bees, monarch butterflies, and birds which feed on the nectar and seeds.
Its distinctive shape makes it easy for native gardening beginners to recognize. If you’re looking for a hardy native plant that is good for home use or in prairies, coneflowers are the best choice! These drought-resistant coneflower seeds are easy to grow.
Purple coneflower grows 2 to 5 feet tall and displays long-lived blooms from early to late summer (June-Sept). These perennials are resistant to deer, and will beautify your landscape for years to come. Purple coneflower is native to the Midwest of the United States and thrives in full to partial sun, preferring medium-wet to medium-dry soil. Make sure they don’t get too much sun though — too much sun can actually fade their purple color!
Though coneflower seeds are excellent at self sowing and spreading, coneflowers tend not to be invasive. They’re easy to keep at bay by cutting the flower heads before the seeds mature and fall to the ground.
