Jefferson documented

Narrow-leaved Coneflower, like its broad-leaved cousin, is native to the Midwestern United States from Minnesota to Texas. An 1805 shipment of plants sent to Jefferson by the Lewis & Clark Expedition included this species, called “Mad Dog Plant.” The Native Indians prized it as a remedy for rattlesnake and mad dog bites. The Latin name, echinos, meaning hedgehog, refers to the bristly cone of disk florets in the center of the large composite flower. This Coneflower has many landscape benefits: the flowers attract butterflies, birds consume the seeds, and it is drought- and deer-tolerant.

This plant will begin shipping in mid April 2014. zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8,zone9
