General Info

Name story

Purple coneflower
Its genus name, Echinacea, means "spiny", because its flowers are especially like a prickly sea urchin, which also has the same genus name. Some people think its flowers resemble petals around pinecones, and so this genus is called the coneflower. Since this species has purple petals around the cones, it is called the purple coneflower.

Usages

Artistic Value
It has been awarded the Garden Excellence Awards from Royal Horticulture Society.
Garden Use
The purple coneflower is typically used in plant, woodland, and wildflower gardens. Gardeners prize its long-blooming nature and its ability to attract pollinators such as butterflies to gardens. The purple coneflower is prized for its adaptability to less than desirable environments such as heat, poor soil, and drought. It is especially popular when planted in mass with Black-Eyed Susans in wildflower or woodland gardens.
