With their rich color palette evoking the spirit of the North American plains and prairies where this genus has its origin, coneflowers are a mainstay in the garden. For the prairie look, plant along with ornamental grasses, tuck into rock gardens or among dry stream-bed boulders. This easy-care perennial is equally at home in mixed borders and cottage gardens. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
