surrounding a brown bristly center. A deep taproot allows Echinacea
paradoxa to survive in very

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.
