Echinacea Purple Coneflower - The beautiful long-lasting purple flowers grow on stems up to 5’ tall. Flowers attract pollinators and roots are used to make tea. These beautiful flowers are native to moist prairies, meadows and open woods of the central and eastern United States.

Echinacea Purple Coneflower seeds can be planted in the fall, directly into the garden soil.

Scatter seeds outside in the fall or start seeds indoors in spring. 

Echinacea requires well-drained soil in full to part sun. It is easy to grow from seed. Sow seeds thickly in the fall covering them lightly with soil.

Plant seeds outside in the spring after the last frost date. Or start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date, then transplant 18-24" apart after all danger of frost has passed. Seeds germinate in 7-21 days.

Plants can grow to a height of 5' tall and grow in full sun or partial shade. 

Each packet contains 300 Echinacea Purple Coneflower seeds. Echinacea purpurea. Annual. Open-pollinated, heirloom, non-GMO. $3.00

Packet plants 100 sq. ft area. 

Echinacea is a low-water plant; however, you’ll need to water young plants to help them establish new roots. Established plants can survive light freezes, but protect your early spring seedlings from late frosts.

Echinacea can be a herbal medicine and has been used for centuries, customarily as a treatment for the common cold, coughs, bronchitis, upper respiratory infections, and some inflammatory conditions. 

Birds and pollinators also love Echinacea, as it provides nectar in the summer and the flowers' seed heads provide seeds for birds in the fall and winter months – so we love to leave stalks standing to bring in feathered friends like Goldfinches to the winter garden.
