Ozark Echinacea

Echinacea paradoxa
SKU: HC014539
per Plant - 5" Deep Pot
No longer available this season.
The paradox of this species is that it's a yellow flowered member of the purple coneflower family. This brightly colored Coneflower blooms in mid-summer with large, showy yellow petaled flowers. Outstanding!

30-36" tall x 15" wide (seed propagated). This is a very rare native wildflower found only in the Ozark region of Arkansas and Missouri. The paradox of this plant is that it is a "yellow" purple Coneflower! The foliage is long and narrow, the golden-yellow flowers are good sized and showy. This is a tap-rooted plant that requires several growing seasons to reach its full size, so be patient. Because Ozark Coneflower is a somewhat lanky grower, I recommend that you plant them in groups of 3 or more to maximize their impact in the garden.
