Things are looking up! In defiance of coneflower protocol, this compact species features slightly upturned purple-rose petals around their spiny orange cone centers. Sometimes they run their faces east toward the rising sun. Long bloom time from late spring to late summer. Best in well drained lean soil; too much fertility may make the stems floppy.
