    Source and origin

    This coneflower came about from a group of self-sown seedlings in our garden, most likely a hybrid between E. purpurea and E. tennesseensis. After a decade of evaluating, we selected one plant for its durability and early flowering, blooming two to three weeks ahead of other coneflower varieties.

    Comments

    Unlike most other hybrid coneflowers, Echinacea 'Public Domain' is not patented and can be propagated and shared freely.
