Details

One of our most popular perennials! Drought tolerant, easy to grow and makes a wonderful cut flower.

Echinacea Purpurea, commonly known as the Purple Coneflower, is one of North America's most popular herbal plants. In fact, it was voted Perennial of the Year 1998 by the Perennial Plant Association! It is used to prevent and treat the common cold, flu and other ailments. As a cut flower, it also makes a wonderful addition to summer bouquets. Each stem bears one flower, which has a round disk with spiky purple chaff and downward drooping purple-pinkish petals. Echinacea is easy to grow and weather resistant. It prefers a sunny spot or partial shade and should be planted 10 in - 25 cm apart in moisture retentive soil of average fertility.
