  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information in this existing library to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

~ Echinacea pallida, Pale Purple Coneflower

Echinacea pallida 

Pale Purple Coneflower

  • Average to very dry soils
  • Full Sun or very light shade
  • 36” tall, 10” to 18” wide
  • Mid summer blooming
  • Beginner Friendly, Meadow or Dry Meadow ecosystems

With a historical range that includes the mid west prairie ecosystems, Echinaceas are introduced in Ontario but are both extremely well adapted to garden conditions and hugely popular with local pollinator species.

Slightly earlier blooming than their cousins Echinacea purpurea, this Coneflower has a distinctive texture, with narrow, drooping flower petals and narrow, rough leaves. They thrive in hot, dry settings and are loved by bees and butterflies, as well as by seed feeding bird species.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing for more details.
