Perennial 70 days to first flower Echinacea purpurea

HEIRLOOM Native to our mid-western prairies, echinacea is hardy perennial is beautiful, deeply medicinal and her petals are edible, as well! Butterflies flock to her bright blooms on long, strong 3+ foot stalks ideal for cutting. Once established, Echinacea will thrive without much care for years and their roots are easily divided to propagate more.

We toss her beautiful magenta petals on salads all summer and echinacea is also deeply medicinal, well known for increasing immune function. The most medicinal part of the plant is the 2-year root followed by her seeds and then leaves; we make an Echinacea root-seed tincture that we take at the first sign of a cold.

At Fruition, we sow echinacea indoors in soil blocks six weeks before final frost, transplanting out after final frost with one foot between plants.
