Echinacea angustifolia is a member of the sunflower, daisy and aster family. The genus name for this flowering herb is taken from the Greek "echinos," which means "hedgehog" in reference to the spiny cone at the center of the flower head. Similarly, "angustifolia" translates to narrow-leafed.

The dried taproot is used to prepare teas, liquid extracts and tinctures.
