(Echinacea pallida ASTERACEAE)
The drooping flower petals are 1-1/2- 3-1/2" long and may range in color from pink, purple, or white, but are typically rosy purple. The flower disk is purple-brown. Leaves are long and narrow. Height 18-30". Medicinal, drought-tolerant plant, native to open woods and rocky prairies from northeast Texas to central Illinois.
All Echinaceas are drought resistant. Keep young plants well weeded. Germination is typically around 50% and all species except E. purpurea require stratification (a period of moist pre-chilling) to break seed dormancy. Seeds may be stratified by sowing in flats or pots in a cold frame over the winter, or a refrigerator for 2 to 4 months depending on the species.
