Plant Description

Tennessee Coneflower 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 are linear, giving 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. In Sept. of 2011, it was de-listed from the Federal Endangered Species list.
