Echinacea pallida or Pale Purple Coneflower is a light pink native wildflower, that is at home in the garden or meadow, and known as one of the top ten native pollinator plants to grow from seed at home.
Echinacea, or Pale Purple Coneflower, is a fast-growing perennial that tolerates dry conditions and full sun, enjoying a little shade in height of Summer, like Rudbeckia, prefers a free-draining, annually leaf-mulched soil.
Echinacea is at home in garden borders, meadows for prairie plains, with ten species there are coneflowers for every space, including compact plants for containers and tall herbaceous perennials for the back of the border.
Lightly scented, everlasting coneflowers start in early Summer are continue through Fall, the central cone is spiny and lasts for many months as dried seed-heads proving seeds for birds and wildlife.
Long season flowering single flowers appear on multi-branched stems in early-Summer, creating a carpet of large daisy flowers when planted on mass, a sea of pale pink blooms.
