|Design Ideas||The quintessential component of the American meadow and prairie garden. Blend with grasses or nestle into streambed banks at boulders for a wild garden composition. A valuable late season bloomer for the traditional perennial border. A superior pick-me-up for tired foundation planting. Equally well-suited to casual country gardens along picket fences or in mixed borders. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.|

|Care||Requires well-drained, fertile soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, prefers regular water but tolerates periodic drought. Remove spent blooms to prolong flowering season. Prune back old foliage and apply fertilizer in early spring before new growth emerges.|
|Lore||Echinacea purpurea, the parent of all contemporary hybrids is a native of the American prairie. Echinacea root was discovered by Native Americans within its range for healing properties. In recent years science has confirmed that the root contains chemicals that stimulate the immune system. Coneflowers are part of the American prairie plant communities and are a well documented bird habitat plant.The genus name Echinacea is derived from the Greek word (echino), meaning "spiny", due to the spiny central disk.|
