Prairie Coneflower is a resilient wildflower with large, yellow-petaled flowers. Blooming through summer, this midwestern prairie native emits a soft fragrance of anise when seeds are crushed, and is long-lived, adaptable and very easy to grow in most situations. This yellow beauty combines well with meadow grasses and flowers and is wonderful for cutting.
