Echinacea pallida inflorescence

[Photo: Echinacea pallida inflorescence.]Echinacea pallida, known in English as "pale purple coneflower" and in French as échinacée pourpré clair is a perennial native to eastern and central North America. As you can see, it resembles its familiar relative Echinacea purpurea, but with paler petals which hang down like a hula skirt (there's even a cultivar called 'Hula Dancer'). Unlike E. purpurea, E. pallida is native to Ontario.
