Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) Plant Profile!

We are starting to create individual Texas native plants profiles and today we will put the spotlight on Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea).


From the entry:

“Echinacea is one of our personal favorites! The flower is quite magical and pronounced; Butterflies can’t get enough of it! A very useful plant that will thrive both in full sun and part shade, it looks especially good when planted in a mass. The sea of purple blooms will intoxicate your eyes. Hardy, pest and disease resistant and drought tolerant, there should be a place for Purple Coneflower in anyone’s Texas native flowerbed design.”


What do you think about Purple Coneflower? Do you grow it yourself? Pictures or insights to share?
