E. 'Rocky Top' is a seed selection of the Federally Endangered Tennessee coneflower. This wonderful species, native to the cedar glades of three counties in central Tennessee, was thought to be extinct until the '60s when it was rediscovered. E. tennesseensis makes a robust clump of narrow leaves, topped with 2' tall flower spikes ending in bright pink flower heads of narrow, slightly upturned petals. We consider this one of the best Echinacea species for the garden...a true conservation success story.
