Echinacea purpurea was one of the first stars of the native plant movement. And who could argue? Butterflies love its pollen and birds love the later seeds. It adapts to almost any conditions and delights throughout the year.Each head can produce as many as 20 drooping flowers. And with some spreading of its roots, within a few seasons you will have a beautiful return on your original investment.Flowers begin in mid-summer and continue for a month or so.  With deadheading, plants occasionally rebloom in autumn much to the delight of hungry fall birds...but much to the dismay of “angry finches” who want the nutty seeds. TRIVIA:  Native Americans and traditional herbalists use roots and above ground parts for immune system support, detoxification and wound healing.Interesting Notes:For more information on this plant, visit the USDA PLANTS Database: http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=ECPU
