Echinacea purpurea 'Prairie Splendor' (Asteraceae)
(ek-in-AY-see-a pur-PUR-ree-a)
Prairie Splendor Coneflower

An outstanding entrant in the ever-expanding Echinacea pageant, 'Prairie Splendor' is a seed strain that blooms a good two weeks earlier than the rest of the tribe! Bouquets of rose-pink coneflowers top 2 stems in early June, and continue into fall with deadheading. Great pick for the front of the border where you can observe flocks of butterflies nectaring. Leave seed heads for winter interest and bird treats.
