This large coneflower has flowers up to six inches across and has a unique colouration - a rosy halo at the centre becomes peach towards the end of the petals. Use en masse for the border, in a mixed bed, and as a cut flower. Echinacea in coastal BC should be planted in hot, dry, sunny spots with thin, average to poor soils for best overwintering.
Dry open woods, prairies and barrens.
