Phonetic: ek-in-AY-shee-a PAL-lid-duh

The showy daisy-like flowers of Pale Purple Coneflower bloom in early summer and are a favorite nectar source for pollinators, including butterflies and hummingbirds. Later in summer the large seed heads attract Goldfinches and other birds. Once established the deep taproot enables a long-lived, very low maintenance plant that is capable of handling hot dry situations with ease.
