Purple Coneflowers - Arboretum

Everywhere I look at the Arboretum, our purple coneflowers are in full bloom. I snipped a few from the outdoor gardens to bedeck my desk and sketch them in my journal ...

Lovely and fresh, love the colours too. Are these related to Eccinacea? They are also a coneflower but if I'm not mistaken they are more purple in colour.
