This fantastic butterfly-attracting native, from Canada south to Texas, is as stunning as E. purpurea, just less known. The 30" tall stems are topped in late spring (mid-June) with large, attractive pink-purple heads, each composed of elegant, very narrow petals. Even it you don't like the looks of coneflowers (I can't imagine), E. angustifolia is the most highly prized species for its medicinal properties...very popular among nursery owners.
