Coneflower is a prairie classic, and is still widely used today in medicinal preparations. Its daisy-like blooms with slighty drooping petals surround a large, coppery-orange central cone complemented by coarse, deep green serrated leaves. All of these features combine to make this native a striking addition to the garden.
