Purple Cornflower (Echinacea purpurea) is one of HOME FARM
HERBERY's all-time favorite flowers. Originally an American prairie heirloom, it
is one of the very best for attracting butterflies. This showy and easy to grow
plant brings welcome color to the late summer garden. Grows well in full sun or
light shade and blooms heavily from July to September. Grows well in clay soils. Plants reach 3-4'
tall. Perennial. Hardy to zone 4. 50 seeds will give you plenty of babies in
MEDICINAL PROPERTIES: Echinacea in all its forms has been
studied for its purported immune system stimulant properties. Definitive
studies come out almost every year on one side or the other of the argument,
but my personal experience is that this is an effective and benign natural
medicine. As long as you don't decimate the plant, it will actually thrive with
such harvesting and actually LIKES to have its flowers cut for your pretty
vase! It encourages more blooms. Wash
and thoroughly screen dry the flowers and roots before storing for tea.
These are a pain (literally) to get out of the prickly seed
heads, which is why I have raised my price a little bit.
