Echinacea is a member of the daisy family and is sometimes called the Purple Coneflower. They flower right through the summer months.
I bought this plant last year to see how it went here. It had a few flowers and did OK but this year it is putting a a great show.
The name, Echinacea, was derived from a Greek word meaning 'hedgehog' due to the spiny looking central disk.
