Echinacea simulata, Wavyleaf purple coneflower, Prairie purple coneflower, Echinacea pallida var. simulata.

Echinacea simulata, is very similar to Echinacea pallida, but is distinguished by its yellow rather than white pollen. Most of what was once thought to be Echinacea pallida east of the Misssissippi is now believed to be Echinacea simulata, perhaps the oldest Echinacea from an evolutionary standpoint.
