Echinacea angustifolia dissection

Echinacea angustifolia DC.

Family: Asteraceae

Growing in a large clump in my yard. This plant was transplanted years ago and seems to be very happy here.

The stems are up-right and around 24-30 inches in height. A light pink flower head grows at each side-branch and terminal branch. They have a long peduncle as well. The leaves are very hairy.

Here is a picture after taking off the 21 ray flowers. Each ray flower is 1 1/2 in to 2 in long

I did not count every disc flower! My best guess would be between 100 and 200.

There were 21 ray flowers.
