About Echinacea

Echinacea purpurea, also known as purple coneflower, has pink flowers and a large, orange-brown cone in the centre. It's perfect for growing in drifts towards the middle or back of a cottage-style or herbaceous border, or among grasses and rudbeckias in a prairie-style planting scheme.

In The Records

The name Echinacea comes from the Greek 'echinos', which describes the nature of a hedgehog - clearly inspired by the bristly scales of the dried seed head. The echinacea coneflower was one of the most important healing plants of the Native Americans.
