(P/3'-4')(FS/PS) Z3-10 Echinacea purpurea is the easiest of the echinaceas to cultivate, with large pinkish-purple flowers, having the typical drooping flower rays. Ours begin to bloom in June and have abundant flowers for months. The leaves are somewhat oval, tapering to a sharp point, the edges are slightly toothed. Echinacea is very important medicinally as a blood purifier and an effective antibiotic, as well as a stimulant to the body's immune system. We also highly recommend E. purpurea for the butterfly garden; our's attracts an incredible amount of butterflies. We sell this as a dried bulk herb as well. 
Bareroots are mailed in March or as soon as weather permits and can be stored in a refrigerator or planted outdoors as soon as soil has warmed.
