Coneflower Plant - Echinacea. The Coneflower is native to the central-eastern United States. Initially, the Coneflower dominated open prairies, meadows, and grasslands.
Related to the famous black-eyed Susan, Coneflower is a popular choice for flower gardens because it produces large, robust fragrant blooms all summer long and attracts bees, butterflies, and other pollinators with its showy, nectar-rich blossoms. The Coneflower produces blooms in pink, red, orange, white, purple, and yellow.
This hardy plant is heat and drought-resistant, making it one of the best perennials for sunny areas of the yard. It's easy to grow and requires minimal maintenance. When growing the Coneflower, plant in dry to medium, well-drained soil. The plant requires 6 - 8 hours of full or filtered sun daily.
Provide adequate spacing between plants to encourage healthy growth. Beheading old blooms, while not required, encourages new growth and keeps plants healthy.
Coneflowers will attract birds to the garden, as well. Chickadees, goldfinches, and other finches eat the seeds. Early Native Americans were said to have used the Coneflower to cure wounds and infections. The Cheyenne called it Mohk ta. They used it to heal sore mouths and gums. The Crow used the Coneflower to help with colds, toothache, and colic. Even today, the plant's roots, stalks, and flowers are used in herbal remedies to boost the immune system.
They also are used widely in dried arrangements due to their bright colors. Sometimes, the remaining cones are used in ornamental arrangements even when petals have fallen off.
Best suited for zones 3 - 10, plants will grow in clumps 18 - 48 inches tall. Plants are well suited for garden and yard borders and edges and are deer-resistant.
