echinacea

plant overview
eye-catching echinacea

Echinacea, commonly known as coneflower, is a flowering plant in the daisy family often grown as a garden ornamental. The plant gets its name from “echinos” which means “hedgehog” in Greek and is a reference to the prickly seed cone at the center of the purple flower head. Although the blooms are eye-catching, it is the root that is of particular interest because it contains a number of polysaccharides. With similar properties, the root of E. angustifolia and E. purpurea are used interchangeably to produce teas, tinctures and extracts.
