In 1968, a Vanderbilt biology professor accidentally discovered dark pink Tennessee coneflowers at Mount View Cedar Glade. Eventually, three other coneflower sites were found in Tennessee. In 1979, the Tennessee Coneflower became one of the first plants to be recorded on the Endangered Species List. With protection and management, this coneflower has thrived and was subsequently removed from the list.
