Echinacea Purpurea Flower

Echinacea purpurea, also referred to as Purple Coneflower or Eastern Purple Coneflower, is a perennial wildflower native to the eastern North America that has naturalized as far as the midwest. The blossoms and roots are often used in tea with the purpurea species being one of the two common found on the marketplace (the other being Echinacea angustifolia).

Echinacea seeds must be cold stratified and will produce blossoms 120 days when seeded under ideal conditions and harvestable roots at 200 days+. If growing for roots, consider harvesting second year roots for more substantial harvest.

Seeds are certified organic.
