Purple Coneflower, The Butterfly Lovers Perennial


Purple Coneflower is one of my favorite perennials. And the butterflies love them too! If you don't have one or two of these planted in your garden, you're missing out. They are good for at least zones 3-9, can take from full sun to partial shade and are pretty much maintenance free.

    Could these be grow in containers?

      @Mickie Turner I wasn't sure so I just googled the subject and found an article where they say that they do well in containers as long as they have well drained soil (as long as it has drain holes for the extra water to run off). So it looks like you can!
