They have hairy stems that can grow up to 4 feet tall. Purple Coneflowers grow in spreading clumps and can be divided every few years and transplanted in the spring or fall. They get their name from the “coned” center of the bloom where the seeds develop. They are a lovely addition to your butterfly gardens.
