Plant Description

Tennessee coneflower, also known as Echinacea tennesseensis, has 2 to 3 inch daisy-like pink flowers with greenish-brown centers or cones. The petals extend out or up as though reaching for the sun. They are not reflexed backwards like those of the Purple Coneflower. The leaves of Tennessee coneflower are linear, giving these plants an open appearance. 1 to 1-1/2 foot tall plants form low sprawling mounds, so are best planted several together. It is very easy to grow, needing full sun and dry, well-drained conditions. It would be an attractive focal point for the front of the garden with its bright cheerful flowers. Flowering persists from June to September.

Until recently, Tennessee coneflower was considered an endangered species because it was threatened with extinction in the wild. But wild populations are in better shape now through preservation efforts, so it is no longer endangered.
