Pale Purple Cone Flower
Pale Purple Cone Flowers (Echinacea sanguinea and Echinacea pallida) are hardy and bloom from spring well into summer. They are found in the wild in and near pine forests, especially the natural home of longleaf pines, such as in southern Angelina County and northern Jasper and Newton counties. Butterflies love them. Bees and butterflies love the 2-4 foot tall stems with lavender, white, or pale rose-pink flowers.
