Echinacea simulata – Glade Coneflower
A cherished Missouri native perennial, Glade Purple Coneflower, Echinacea simulata, graces the landscape with large, daisy-like flowers with pale pink drooping petals that surround a spiny, coppery orange center. Flowers top 3′ stems heavily in June to late summer, then sporadically through fall. It makes delightful cut and dried arrangements. Goldfinches adore its seeds. Wonderful massed in the garden, or naturalized in large areas or part shade areas of a woodland garden.
Plant in full sun to part shade.
