Ozark Coneflower is a prairie plant that is native to central US. Long, narrow drooping petals frame copper-orange cones.

Coneflowers have 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.

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.
