Plant Description

Yellow Purple Coneflower occurs in the wild only in Arkansas, where it is rare. Plants are 2 to 3 1/2 feet tall, with narrow elliptic leaves. Flowering begins in early summer and lasts about 4 weeks. The flower heads are daisy-like with narrow, bright, orangey yellow rays (petals) 3 to 4 inches long that are reflexed downward and greenish brown cones. These flowers positively glow in the sun. Give it full sun, average soil, and dryish conditions, and it will be gorgeous.
