|Lore||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.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Fast growth 2 to 3 feet tall and as wide.|
|Design Ideas||Coneflowers are the quintessential perennials of wild gardens that feature American meadows and prairie plant communities. Well suited to banks of stream beds and drainages. A valuable late season bloomer for the traditional perennial border. Superior injection of color for tired foundation planting. Equally well suited to casual country gardens along picket fences or in mixed borders. Exotic yellow coloring also works nicely in tropical plantings.|
