Also known as Black Samson Echinacea.

Narrow-leaf Coneflower is an attractive perennial that 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) or Pale Coneflower (Echinacea pallida). It tolerates drought, heat, humidity and poor soils, as long as it has good drainage. 

All Echinacea species are a good nectar source for butterflies. Birds, particularly Goldfinches, eat the seeds.

Narrow-leaf Coneflowers work well in cottage or meadow gardens, perennial borders, prairie gardens, perennial and naturalized gardens.
