Southern Gardening: Coneflowers are an easy choice
Purple coneflowers are a flowering Mississippi native perennial that can really make a statement in your home garden and landscape.
The plant’s name comes from the beautiful purple flowers that seem to attract an endless number of butterflies and bees, especially all sorts of bumblebees. Traditionally, flower colors range from pastel purplish-pinks to deep, dark, vibrant burgundies.
Purple coneflowers are members of the genus Echinacea, which is derived from the Greek word for hedgehog. This seems like a fitting description of their seeds, as they are very spiny and prickly.
