The Tennessee Coneflower is extremely rare, and is an endangered species. It is naturally only found in 3 counties in Tennessee. It was thought to be completely extinct until the 1960s. The appearance of the Tennessee coneflower is different than that of the standard Purple Coneflower. The leaves and petals of the flower are thinner, and the petals reach straight out or curl up versus the downward point of the regular plant. The color of the flowers is also different. The Tennessee Coneflower does attract bees, birds, and butterflies. This is a great opportunity to own an extremely rare plant and help restore nature!
