I see some Green-headed or Cutleaf Coneflowers in scattered areas of meadow and woodland edges in the wild of southeast Pennsylvania in well-drained or draining wet soils. I've seen it in a few gardens also. Some are sold by larger, diverse conventional nurseries or native plant nurseries. It blooms in July into September and is a good pollinator plant. Its native range is from Quebec to Montana south to Arizona to Florida.
