It typically grows in an upright clump to 2-3' tall and to 1-1.5' wide on sturdy, well-branched stems that do not need staking. Each flower (to 3-4" diameter) features downward-arching, overlapping, deep rose-purple rays which encircle a large orange-brown center cone. Narrow-ovate leaves (to 6” long) are medium green. Echinacea Pow Wow Wild berry is a 2010 All-America Selection (AAS) winner. Echinacea purpurea, commonly called purple coneflower, is a coarse, rough-hairy, herbaceous perennial that is native to moist prairies, meadows and open woods of the central to southeastern United States (Ohio to Michigan to Iowa south to Louisiana and Georgia). It typically grows to 2-4' tall. Showy daisy-like purple coneflowers (to 5" diameter) bloom throughout summer atop stiff stems clad with coarse, ovate to broad-lanceolate, dark green leaves. Good fresh cut or dried flower. The dead flower stems will remain erect well into the winter, and if flower heads are not removed, the blackened cones may be visited by goldfinches or other birds that feed on the seeds. Genus name of Echinacea comes from the Greek word echinos meaning hedgehog or sea-urchin in reference to the spiny center cone found on most flowers in the genus. Specific epithet means purple. They are drought and heat tolerant with long-lasting magnificent displays of large daisies with coned centers. A North American native in the Daisy family, Echinacea produce big, bright flowers from late June until frost. Plants thrive in average soils and withstand hot and dry conditions. Blooms last well cut or dried, and the seeds in the large cone at the center of the flower head provide nourishment for birds when finished blooming. Echinacea is a must have in every garden for butterflies and pollinators.
