Tennessee Coneflower (Echinacea tenneseensis)

from 9.95

In 1979, the Tennessee coneflower was one of the first plants to be placed on the endangered species list. But a 30-year recovery campaign by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation and The Nature Conservancy resulted in this native’s recovery from the brink of extinction, which has now been de-listed.

 

The pinkish-purple flowers bloom all summer with their petals extending up instead of back like the Purple Coneflower. It has slender, green-gray foliage. Grows 18-24 inches tall. Needs dry, well-drained soil conditions.
