Purple Coneflower (Echinacea Purpurea) - Echinacea, (pronounced Ek-i-nay-see-a), commonly known as purple coneflower, is a herbaceous perennial plant with four species and six varieties all indigenous to North America, of which three, E. pallida var pallida, E. pallida var angustifolia, and E. purpurea, are grown commercially. Used in perennial borders for over 200 years, the species E. purpurea, in particular, is widely known, and it grows readily from Purple Coneflower seeds. Today, a move back to more natural tonics and medicines and our eclectic approach to health are contributing to a resurfacing of traditional uses of medicinal herbs such as echinacea. Some European countries, in particular Germany, are very familiar with the purple coneflower herb and have added many Echinacea herb products in the marketplace.
The traditional use of the Echinacea herb plant was considered helpful for the common cold, toothache, burns and external sores, sore throat, psoriasis, rheumatism, stomach cramps and to counter the effects of poison ivy and snakebite. It has more recently claimed to be a blood purifier, an anti-infection agent (viral and bacterial), an immune system strengthener, and snakebite antidote.
Purple coneflower wild flower seed species are found throughout central and Southeastern USA in open woods, prairies and along roadsides. The species E. pallida var. angustifolia makes its way up to South-eastern Saskatchewan and Southern Manitoba. This is quite tolerant of drought, though grows better in cultivation with adequate watering, and can tolerate fairly diverse soil types. The species E. purpurea enjoys moist areas and is often found along creeks and in seepage areas. Purple coneflower is generally indigenous to soils with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Selection of good sites will be important for this wildflower seed crop since it is a root crop and a deep well drained loam to sandy loam soil will be best for growing and harvesting. The extreme tolerances of physical and chemical soil characteristics are not known.

The seller was great with communication, the seeds were carefully packaged, and they shipped immediately! Awesome experience. I will grow these next summer, but I feel very confident they will turn out beautifully. I will absolutely be buying from here again! the variety makes my heart sing!
Love this shop so much! The order was processed and delivered quickly. The seeds were packaged so nicely with a protective envelope as well as a plethora of information about each plant. Can't wait to plant them & see how they turn out! I'll definitely order from this shop again.
Loved the options of seed types! So fun and exciting to see my little crops of Sequoias and barrel cactuses come in! I also love that they provide guidance on how to grow the seeds. My "brown thumb" is now a "greenish-brown thumb". Thanks!!!!!!!!
Once again very fast shipping and great looking healthy seeds.
