(Tennessee coneflower) This plant is on the federal endangered species list and growing it from this cultivated seed is an act of conservation.  This is a powerful plant.  Source of alkylamides.  Tennesseensis is easier to grow than Echinacea angustifolia, withstands a more acid/clay type soil, and has (like all the Echinaceas, really) an incredible and unique coneflower.  The ray flowers on Echinacea tennesseensis reflex backward. Plant prefers full sun to part shade and rich, moist soil of garden or woodland edge.  Sow seed in the early spring in flats outdoors or in the greenhouse, and transplant seedlings out to the garden or field in mid-spring.  Space plants 2 feet apart.

      Hello Dara,
      Yes, Echinacea angustifolia is native to the Rocky Mountains and would be your best choice.
