Echinacea simulata -Wavy Leaf Cone Flower
This is a listing for a pack of 30 seeds.This is native to the eastern central states of the USA including Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Tennessee. 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 pale rose coloured petals in this species are reflexed quite strongly, in common with its near relative, the pale Cone Flower.
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.
