ECHINACEA

Commonly known as Coneflower

Echinacea and its relative Rudbeckia are the coneflowers from North America.

The former is the perennial for borders and open woodland, the latter often grown for naturalising in a meadow or, as cultivar hirta, as an annual for infilling and borders.

Echinacea is a genus of 9 species of bold, stiff perennials from dry prairies, gravelly hillsides and open woodland in central and eastern North America. the name is derived from the Greek for hedgehog.
