Pale Purple Coneflower (Echinacea pallida) is Ontario's truly native coneflower and can be found in much of the central United States. Its flowers are a unique dusty purple and emerge in early summer. It forms a deep taproot which allows for great drought tolerance, but it does not do well in undrained soil and resents being transplanted. It is a food source of the adult Ottoe Skipper butterfly, which is listed as endangered in Canada and threatened in the United States.
