Native to dry North American prairies, this long-blooming perennial flourishes in Puget Sound gardens. Also called coneflower, Echinacea’s conical center is a collection of spiky, leaf-like bracts and tiny flowers. Its name comes from the Greek word ekhinos, meaning hedgehog.
Echinacea is rich in nectar and is popular with bees and butterflies when blooming, and birds when it goes to seed. We carry more than 20 varieties, including:
