This coneflower produces large, rose-purple flowers, up to 6 inches across, with dome-shaped centers, giving it the alternate common name of Hedgehog Coneflower. Plants are easy to grow, and will tolerate a combination of heat and humidity. It makes a good cut flower, and the flowers attract butterflies, honey bees and wild bees. Seeds are attractive to birds. Purple Coneflower is often used in prairie restoration where locally common.
