Ozark or Bush's Coneflower has a bright yellow bloom, while all other native Echinaceas are purple to pink. Butterflies and other pollinators flock to the large, daisy-like flowers with large brown central cones, and birds love the seeds. This rare native wildflower is found only in the Ozark region of Arkansas and Missouri, but also thrives in gardens in the upper Midwest. Preferring medium to dry soil conditions and in full sun to partial shade, it blooms along with Pale Purple Coneflower approximately June through July.
