Family: Aster (Asteraceae)

Herbaceous perennial prairie dweller. Originally native to a wide band stretching from Michigan south to Louisiana, then west to Texas and Oklahoma, but currently uncommon in the wild. Widely cultivated. Does well in pots. Among all 9 species of Echinacea, this one is best suited to varied growing conditions, whether coastal or mountain, east or west. It is easy to grow, and produces on the average 1/2 pound of fresh root by the dormant period following the second year of growth. Our strain was originally derived from a rare wild collection. It has not been intentionally modified or hybridized in any way from the original source, and therefore contains the rich spectrum of active chemicals found in the original wild plant. Traditional usage (TWM): immune enhancement. Plant prefers full sun and rich, moist soil of garden or grassland.
