Pale Purple Coneflower is simialr to Purple Coneflower, but the preference is full sun and average to dry conditions. The soil can contain loam, clay, or rocky material. There is a tendency to flop over when in bloom if it is pampered by too much water or lacks adequate support from adajacent vegetation. It doesn't seem to be bothered much by disease, and withstands drought very well.
