Echinacea simulata

Glade Coneflower

A showy summertime standout for the native perennial garden! Echinacea simulata, known commonly as the Glade Coneflower or the Ozark Coneflower for its preferred prairie-grassland habitat, is a North American native known as much for its attractive qualities as it is for being highly adaptable to a variety of site conditions. Echinacea simulata is highly tolerant of rocky, shallow soils, and is capable of handling partial shade as long as it has well-drained soil. The pale pink blooms with coppery-orange centers appear from June to July, often reblooming sporadically into August. Various pollinators are known to visit Glade Coneflowers, collecting the yellow pollen as they forage for nectar. Following its summertime bloom period, persistent seedheads remain upright over narrow, medium-green foliage, and often remain throughout fall and into winter when they are harvested by hungry Goldfinches.
