Echinacea is a genus, or group of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family, Asteraceae. The echinacea genus has nine species, which are commonly called coneflowers. They have large, showy heads of composite flowers, blooming from early to late summer
Like all Asteraceae, the flowering structure is a composite inflorescence, with rose-colored (rarely yellow or white) florets arranged in a prominent, somewhat cone-shaped head – "cone-shaped" because the petals of the outer ray florets tend to point downward (are reflexed) once the flower head opens, thus forming a cone. The common name "cone flower" comes from the characteristic center "cone" at the center of the flower.
