Echinacea paradoxa, yellow coneflower or Bush's Purple coneflower, resembles Pale Purple Coneflower but has yellow petals. The pretty blossoms of Yellow Coneflower consist of yellow daisy-like petals surrounding a brown bristly center.  A deep taproot allows Echinacea paradoxa to survive in very dry conditions like the Ozark glades but it is also happy in humus-rich garden soil and full sun.  Yellow Coneflower is visited by nectar seeking butterflies in June and small seed eating birds in the fall.  Typically, paradoxa is seen blooming naturally on limestone glades in the Ozarks.  Echinacea paradoxa is very attractive planted individually or as a mass planting.  Like other coneflowers, Echinacea paradoxa coneflower often falls victim to unscrupulous root diggers who illegally harvest the roots for its medicinal uses.  Yellow Coneflower grow wild in the Ozarks in Missouri and Arkansas but will grow easily in other areas of the United States. 

Wild Echinacea paradoxa is sometimes confused with Ratibida pinnata (prairie coneflower, grayhead coneflower), they share the common name of Yellow Coneflower but are completely different plants.

Germination of Wild Echinacea paradoxa flower seed is improved after a pretreatment of 3 to 6  weeks of cold moist stratification or when planted outside in fall/winter.

Native Yellow Coneflower is a pretty plant occurring naturally on bald knobs, dry glades, and prairies in Missouri and Arkansas.   Asteraceae (Aster Family)
