Echinacea purpurea - Purple Coneflower
This is the best known coneflower and is hard to beat for its beautiful purple flowers in the summer. Much sought after for its medicinal properties. Will tolerate some shade but does best in sunny dry areas. This plant is a must for every wildflower garden. One of our best flowers for attracting butterflies.
