Another one for the weird and wonderful category! This coneflower sports a second tier of petals which erupts from the tip of the cone. Sometimes you might have to wait until your plant is established in its second year to get the extra petals. Guaranteed to make every visitor in your garden do a double take! Plant in full sun in average (not overly rich), well-drained soils. Avoid soils that are overly moist in winter.
Dry open woods, prairies and barrens.
