Clasping Coneflower is a native wildflower that will produce a show of color from spring to fall! The leaves of this species clasp the stem and the brilliant yellow petals drape from the black cone-like center. These flowers will grow well in meadows, prairies and along roadsides and are naturalized through most of North America. Clasping Coneflowers are often found in great colonies in wildflower meadows. These annuals grow quickly and reseed easily.
Direct sow into firm soil in the late fall to overwinter and germinate in the spring or in the spring after danger of frost is past pressing into the soil. Keep moist until germination.
