Native gardens simply aren't complete without a healthy variety of coneflowers. Coming in all sizes and colors, finding a variety is hardly a complicated task. When picking out flowers for your native or pollinator garden, a must-have is the Pale Purple Coneflower (Echinacea pallida). Easy to grow, full of texture, and packed with personality, the Pale Purple Coneflower will elevate any landscape it graces!
The Pale Purple Coneflower, like most other coneflowers, has a prominent coppery-orange cone in their centers. Where they differ is their long and slender petals that fall in a cascade from the cones. The color could be described as pale purple but that would be doing it a disservice. It's closer to the color of dawn right before the sun rises on the horizon. One thing is for sure, it's a shade you won't want to miss!
The unique look of this flower doesn't end there though. The majority of this plant is close to the ground a vibrant green. However, the flowers shoot up midsummer on strong and sturdy stems. The Pale Purple Coneflower is the perfect specimen for perennial gardens that need a little bit of texture!
This coneflower may be purple, but it will light up with an abundance of colors throughout the season as butterflies flock to grab a tasty snack! Cornflowers are notorious pollinator favorites, having a few in the garden guarantees visits by your winged friends.
The ways to use this flower in gardens are endless! Pale Purple Coneflowers are lovely planted in mass as a border specimen or as fantastic accents to naturalized areas such as meadows. Creativity is a coneflower's best friend!
Pale Purple Coneflowers are native to a large part of the country. From the open dry rocky prairies to savannahs and glades, this flower grows effortlessly just about anywhere. It thrives best when planted in well-drained soil in either full sun or partial shade. It has a low moisture requirement, meaning it is quite drought tolerant as well!
Coneflowers have a personality all their own and are hard to replicate. You'll want a whole host of them filling your naturalized gardens. Order a Pale Purple Coneflower today!
