Echinacea tennesseensis

This is what vacant lots in Memphis can look like next Spring if we can accomplish the Tennessee Coneflower part of the plan.  These plants normally grow in the cedar glades of Central Tennessee in a range where all plants are within 14 miles of each other.  In case you do not know, Cedar Glades are areas where the bedrock is close to exposed.  It has tons of hot sun and hard soil.  The plant develops a taproot which digs deep for water and nutrition.  Sound familiar?

Let's see if we can bring this endangered species to Memphis!
