Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan'

White Swan Coneflower, Purple Echinacea, Rudbeckia purpurea, Echinacea

This popular, summer-blooming North American native has large, daisy-like flowers with raised, cone-shaped centers which rise in stiff masses on stout, 3- to 5-foot, hairy stems. The short-lived, but long-blooming flowers attract butterflies, make excellent cut flowers and range in color from purple, to rose, to pink, to white. The dried, chopped underground roots are used in herbal remedies to stimulate the immune system. Start by seed or division. In eastern states, watch for Japanese Beetles.
