Plant Details: Tennessee Coneflower
4 - 8
This species is a extremely rare native perennial only from Tennessee. The flowers are deep vivid pink and is known to have the riches hues in it ray petals of any Coneflowers. Its petals tend to be held rigidly horizontal. Tennessee coneflower grows best in sunny sites in well-drained alkaline soils and very easy to grow. Like many species of Echinacea,tennesseensis is not well known in the nursery trade. An interesting note. I have noticed this species flowers following the sun like sunflowers do.
We are always interested in darker/richer color forms.
