Jane's Garden 8/3/14: Echinacea, or purple coneflower, an unpicky perennial

-A A +A

Gardeners like perennial plants that will last for many years in the garden, have a long bloom season and grow well without much maintenance. Purple coneflower is one of nine species of perennial Echinacea native to the United States which occur naturally nowhere else in the world. It is readily available at retail garden centers. Coneflowers are frost-hardy, as they go dormant and lose their leaves in winter. However, they cannot survive the summer heat south of Central Florida’s heat zone 10.
