Tennessee Purple Coneflower. Perennial— Here's a chance to grow a really rare native species! This species is almost extinct in the wild, being native only to dry glades in the hills and mountains of Tennessee. Appearance is similar to the commoner types of Purple Coneflowers, except that the ray flower petals tend to be narrow and not usually reflexed. This makes the starlike flowers unusually showy in an understated way. Flower heads reach 18-30 inches in height. The plants take dry soil and fairly hot-summer conditions. Great for dry banks and roadside plantings.

What are the pros? Unique form that endures

What are the cons? None to speak of

Review:

The slender spoked petals make this a unique addition to our garden. These flowers add a lot of texture, and look good even as the blooms fade because they are already naturally a little "ragged". They are really great both fresh and faded. The plants tolerate the acid soil of Rhode Island (ph 5.5 where I planted them), and have done well in the hot dry summer. All in all robust and easy to care for. I marked "Early Maturity" as three stars because as is normal, the flowers grown from seed only bloomed the second year. This has been the case with most cone flowers I have grown from seed, so no problem. My only regret is that I did not plant in more dense stands. The plants are fairly slender. Next time I will thin the seedlings less. Over all a great addition of texture and color for the garden.
