Echinacea pallida seeds, organic


Family:  Aster (Asteracea)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 8

(Pale-purple coneflower) Herbaceous perennial native to the central plains states.  This is a tall, taprooted plant bearing beautiful composite flowers with drooping ray flowers and white pollen adorning the conehead.  These are far more exquisite than any hybridized Echinaceas.  The stems are tall and winsome, with the oversized coneheads swinging freely even in the slightest wind.  Very good for fairies, not so easy for photographers.  Traditional usage (TWM): immune enhancement.  Plant prefers open garden or grassy prairie, full to part sun and mesic soil.  Cold stratify seed for 30 days before sowing in a warm place, or sow in fall or very early spring for spring emergence.  Thin or transplant to 1 to 2 feet apart.  Flowers pale purple to 3 to 4 feet.  This is one of the more robust of the Echinaceas and it is recommended for prairie restoration sites and for anyone open to breaking out of the purpurea mold.
