Echinacea paradoxa - Yellow Cone Flower
This is a listing for a pack of 30 seeds.This is native to Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. Fairly rare, it is a very unusual cone flower and as nursery stock, they command quite high prices. It grows to around 90 cm tall and is a perennial that spreads by means of its rhizomatous roots, a feature common to many USA temperate perennial herbs. The flowers are typical for that of the group, with a cone shaped flower caused as the petals reflex away from the centre. The bright yellow coloured petals are what set it apart, as this is a fairly unique colour amongst the cone flowers.
Tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, this species is suitable for Zones 5 - 9. Ideally suited for a wildlife or wildflower garden, this plant is extremely attractive to both butterflies and birds. It will also add charm to a cottage garden planting with the cone like flowers nodding gently in any breeze.
