Echinacea pallida

This coneflower blooms in early summer just before its cousin, Purple Coneflower. The flowers are very pale pink-purple and the petals droop almost straight downward, with slender, lance-shaped leaves. Well-suited for naturalized landscapes with other prairie flowers and grasses.

Provides nectar for butterflies and native bees. Leave the large seed heads on the plant to provide seed for foraging birds. Makes a good cut flower, too.

A resilient, adaptable perennial, its deep taproot makes it tolerant of drought and poor soils once established. Grows up 2-3’ tall, medium to dry, well-drained soil, full to partial sun. Deer resistant. Native to central and eastern Oklahoma.
