This listing is for one packet of Ozark Coneflower (Echinacea paradoxa) seeds. Each packet contains roughly 100 seeds. For best germination of native species, remember to scatter seeds October-January!
A wild type echinacea with yellow petals that is appealing to butterflies! Prefers rocky soils, but adapts well to any soil with good drainage. Will put on a second bloom if dead headed.
"The only native Echinacea to bloom outside the pink-purple spectrum. These sunny yellow flowers are also the most fragrant within the genus. Wild populations are found only in the Ozark region, but this plant thrives in many garden situations. Plant with Echinacea pallida for many weeks of blooms when mature." [up to 3 years]
