Description
With a flower that looks a lot like a large black-eyed susan, the echinaceas have always been stars in plains plantings. They are tough, great for cutting, and some of our most beautiful native wildflowers. Once plants with their dark green, deeply-veined leaves are established, echinacea can be one of the most important colormakers in a mature meadow in midseason. But today, these flowers have even further importance. Under its botanical genus name, Echinacea, it has gained worldwide popularity as the No. 1 herbal medicinal. Long a favorite of Native Americans in treating snakebite, echinacea today is used in tablet and other forms to ward off colds and flus, and even to support the immune system. Millions of Americans now take pills or potions containing echinacea daily. (Medicine is made from all parts of the plant, but most important are the thick black rootstocks, which are ground up for processing.) The "Pale Coneflower" is the top species used in medicines, but the more common "Purple Coneflower" is used as well.

For the darker-hued "Purple Coneflower", see Echinacea purpurea.

        Comments about American Meadows Pale Coneflower Seeds:

        I had no luck with the seeds. Zero germination. Though it is partly my fault as I basically scattered the seeds on bare ground (no grass, just dirt) and very sparsly covered them. I think most of the problem was my planting method, but from everything I've read on planting wild flowers thats pretty much all you are supposed to do. Next time I guess I'll have to start them in seed trays under better conditions and transplant.
