Echinacea angustifolia is a hardy perennial original to Canada and the Pacific Northwest and Plains regions of the United States. The genus name for this plant is adapted from the Greek echino, which means “sea urchin” and describes the spiny appearance of the disc-like center of its flowers. This attribute also gave rise to the plant’s common name: purple coneflower.

The Sioux and Pawnee were familiar with the properties of the herb they knew as snakeroot and shared their experience with European settlers. In the mid-1800s, Dr. H. C. F. Meyer, a German physician who settled in Pawnee, Nebraska, developed an Echinacea-based tonic that he named “Meyer’s Blood Purifier,” although he also frequently referred to it as “Black Sampson, the Slayer of All Ailments.” Although the good doctor kept his patented formula a closely guarded secret, he took his tonic on the road and spent more than a decade promoting what would become the first of many snake oil patent medicines.
