Plant Description: A popular perennial with smooth, 2-5 ft. stems and long-lasting, lavender flowers. Rough, scattered leaves that become small toward the top of the stem. Flowers occur singly atop the stems and have domed, purplish-brown, spiny centers and drooping, lavender rays. The genus name is from the Greek echinos, meaning "hedgehog," an allusion to the spiny, brownish central disk.

Often cultivated, Purple Coneflower is a showy, easily grown garden plant. The flowers of Echinacea species are used to make an extremely popular herbal tea, purported to help strengthen the immune system. *CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL FOR MEDICAL USE. NEVER CONSUME PLANTS WITHOUT PROPER ID*

Growing Instructions: Easy to grow, Echinacea purpurea prefers full to partial sun and medium soil conditions. Growth is best in fertile loam, but it will tolerate clay or dryer conditions. It is somewhat drought resistant, but the entire plant may wilt if the soil becomes too dry in strong sunlight. Uncommon in the wild, it is readily available commercially, and the seed is often used in land restoration.
