Echinacea angustifolia, also called narrow-leaved purple coneflower, is a sun and heat-loving cousin to the sunflower that occurs naturally in the prairies of the Great Plains.

While the conical seed head is a favorite food for golden finches, the long taproot is dried and powdered to make extracts, tinctures, capsules and topical ointments and creams.

echinacea (ang) root

Echinacea angustifolia is a perennial species in the aster family that naturally occurs in pastures, fields and other undisturbed places with a range spanning the Canadian northwest to the American gulf. Also known as narrow-leafed purple coneflower and black Samson, Echinacea was used extensively by various Native American tribes. In fact, its reverence is evident in native writings and art, particularly in samples of traditional beadwork.

This herb is among one of the most popular in the American culture, both past and present. The powdered taproot of the plant is often encapsulated as a dietary supplement or is incorporated into various topical formulations.
