A Hardy Northeast Texas Perennial: Purple Coneflower

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Cynthia Beacom, Hunt County Master Gardener, says perennials are economical and relatively easy to manage in the garden.  She says one of her favorites is the purple coneflower.  She says other colors of the plant don't work as well for her.  She also recommends Jacob Cline bee balm (which attracts bees) and John Fanick phlox (which attracts butterflies). 

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
