Perennials are one of the most popular categories of plants today. Most perennials flower in spring or summer and grow each year from their roots. Perennials can last many years and are normally categorized as either shade or sun loving.

PowWow Wild Berry Coneflower has magenta purple flowers from late spring to late summer and sometimes reblooms in the fall. It grows in an upright clump on sturdy, well-branched stems that do not need staking. Great cut flower or dried flower. The dead flower stems will remain erect well into the winter, and if flower heads are not removed, the blackened cones may be visited by goldfinches or other birds that feed on the seeds. Echinacea comes from the Greek word echinos meaning hedgehog in reference to the spiny center cone found on most flowers in the genus.
