Little Goldstar Coneflower is an introduction from Jelitto Seeds.

Lots of yellow daisy-like flowers surrounding a prominent brown cone that in winter, provide a healthy snack for birds. Flowers are great for fresh or dried floral bouquets and are very attractive to butterflies and bees in the summer. Drought tolrant once established. Unlicensed propagation prohibited.
