 Everything about 'Henry Eilers' sweet coneflower is, indeed, pretty sweet: its unique "quilled" flowers, its sturdy yet graceful habit, and its months of late summer blooms that attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The blooms resemble conventional black-eyed Susans, but instead of flat petals, each is rolled up into a neat tube, which brings a dazzling textured effect to the garden. The "sweet" part of its name comes from the light, sweet vanilla-like fragrance given off by its foliage, but like we said - we like pretty much everything about this unique, easy-to-grow, super-durable perennial!
