Purple Coneflower is a coarse, hairy native perennial with an upright clumping habit with strong stems that do not need staking.  The dark green foliage is broadly lance-shaped.  Purple Coneflower has showy daisy-like purple coneflowers with downward arching petals with an orange center cone that blooms throughout summer. 

The long lasting flowers are a nectar favorite and attract several butterflies and bees, while spent stems will stay erect and attract birds.

Although it blooms in summer, echinacea is a great ally during cold and flu season. The fresh root is indicated for virus and infection, internally and topically.* The flowers are also edible and make for a vibrant salad!

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
