Coneflowers are midwest US natives with a reputation for being short-lived, and this is true as they are naturally fleeting plants. However, they will self-sow when happy and can persist for years in the garden. They are happiest in full sun on rich, well-drained soil. All species are deer and drought resistant. Pollinators adore them.

We love E. pallida for its narrow, drooping pale-pink petals.

Tip: let the dried flower heads remain on the plant through winter. Their winter silhouette is wonderful and the seeds are a favorite among goldfinches.
