Purple Coneflower, Echinacea purpurea. ©Dan Porter
Anyone who knows me, knows I am a Ornamental Grass gardener. I like stuff that is drought tolerant, neglect worthy, and only needs to be touched once a year. Lucky for us Missouri gardeners there are many native grasses that fit the bill. There are very few native perennials that have beautiful flowers that fit that description, with the exception of the Purple Coneflower, Echinacea purpurea.
