Yes. That's a coneflower, it won't hurt anything at this stage and it will come back for you next year.

As soon as I say this someone will probably prove me wrong with the exception to the rule but the easy way to look at it is where do the flowers grow and where do the chutes that support them come from. If it's coming off a woody part of the plant it's old growth, a green stem is new growth. If they bloom on new growth that goes straight to the root ball (which these flowers do) you can cut them all the way back and they will come back next year presuming you wait and only cut them off after they're dead. If you cut them too early you can stunt them for a year but once they're dead you can cut them.
