Echinacea question Tdogmom

christie_sw_mo(Z6)November 8, 2011

You posted a photo of Anise Swallowtails nectaring on an echinacia that was yellow and I'm wondering if you can tell me exactly what it is, whether it's a native plant or a cultivar? My echinaceas are purple. I'm always curious when I see so many butterflies nectaring on a plant. Hoping it's something I can grow here.

I'll post a link to the thread below.


Here is a link that might be useful: echinace photo is about 1/4 of the way down

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The echinacea in the picture looks like Sunrise.
