Echinacea purpurea potted plant, organic

(2 customer reviews)

$7.50$50.00

Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 12

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.  Space plants 2 feet apart.

Potted Plant, Certified Organically Grown

    AMAZING company!

    I recently ordered Echinacea live plants along with a bunch of other seeds and plants. I was so impressed by all of them. My seeds arrived early for planting and the germination was great! The live plants arrived yesterday and were packed to perfection. I could feel the good juju coming from the plants and their handlers. Thanks so much for having such an amazing company that cares for plants like I do.

    I ordered the echinacea, comfrey, and scullcap, and was a bit worried about shipping live plants. Not only were they sweet and patient about my concerns, but my plants were packaged securely and everything was in wonderful condition upon arrival. I dearly appreciate the attentive care that went into filling my order. Thank you!

      Amazing! I ordered Echinacea, violas, and Dang-shen (17 total) and arrived in perfect conditions. The plants were at least 6″ long, healthy, green, and well established. I can’t wait to transplant in the garden once the transition period ends. Thank you!!!

      Is it too late to purchase these for in ground transplant since they don’t ship until May (I’m in Texas)? I’m wondering if I should purchase the seeds for fall sow instead. Thanks!!

      Hi Kim, Echinacea purpurea is the most forgiving of the Echinacea species in terms of adaptation to various climes–I’ve seen it successfully grown in Hawaii. If your soil is extremely dry then a transplant wouldn’t work–these would need reasonably rich, moist soil although heat doesn’t bother them–they like it. I always recommend people to start herbs from seed–it is a good way to begin the process of selection and acclimatization, but if you want a year headstart, or have trouble starting seeds, then get the plants. richo
