This yellow coneflower, native west of the Mississippi River from Missouri down to Texas, is easy to grow in most well drained garden sites. It typically reblooms with out deadheading, although will self-seed when spent flowers are left in place. The erect seed heads are attractive and prove inviting to goldfinches and other birds throughout the winter.
