Also known as Cabbage-Leaf Coneflower, this plant holds a lovely coarse textured leaf about 2' tall through winter adding interest to any landscape. In summer, it sends stalks to 5-7' tall holding bright yellow coneflowers aloft. It is a stunning additions to your landscape. Bonus, the finches adore it.


This host plant attracts birds, bees, and butterflies. Deer may munch on the leaves if no more preferable food is available to them (my forest goats only only snack on it in winter). The plant survives and looks fine in spring.
