Echinacea paradoxa – Ozark Coneflower
A rare Missouri native perennial, Ozark Coneflower, Echinacea paradoxa, brings stunning color and sweet fragrance to the landscape in summer. Bright yellow daisy-like flowers with drooping petals surround a large, brown cone. It creates fabulous displays for gardens, containers, cut flower bouquets and dried arrangements. Butterflies can’t resist its tasty nectar, and birds love its seeds. Although tolerant of poor soil and drought, for best results water during dry spells. Dead heading spent flowers will encourage more blooming.
