Also known as Pale Purple Coneflower.

Pale Coneflower is an attractive perennial that benefits from inter-planting with grasses or other perennials. It is easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It does best in full to part sun. It is more drought-tolerant than Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea). It tolerates drought, heat, humidity and poor soils, as long as it has good drainage.

Pale Coneflower benefits from clump division when overcrowded (every few years). It reseeds readily if seed heads are left in place. It works well in cottage or meadow gardens, prairie gardens, perennial and naturalized gardens.
