(Echinacea purpurea) Herbaceous perennial.
Our Home Farm Herbery Organic Perennial Echinacea Purpurea Seeds are now
available to sow seed outdoors in very early spring or fall. This plant prefers full sun, with well drained, limey soil and regular watering. It is a beloved medicinal that is used for its immune enhancing properties.
Cultivation: Sow seed in the early spring in flats outdoors or in the greenhouse, and transplant seedlings out to the garden or field in mid-spring (middle of May in our area). Starting earlier, and transplanting twice into progressively bigger containers will result in a much better rooted transplant, which will probably flower in the first year. It is fairly easy to seed this plant directly in the garden or field. Sow the seed shallowly in the early to mid-spring. Keep moist. Once the plants are up, you must stay on top of the weeds, and thin to 1 foot spacing after the second set of leaves has formed. E. purpurea likes full sun, plenty of water, and rich, limey soil. This is the species best suited to varied growing conditions, whether coastal or mountain, east or west. It is easy to grow, and produces on the average 1/2 pound of fresh root by the dormant period following the second year of growth.

Flowers 3 to 4 feet tall.
