Flower Form: Echinacea, or coneflower, is notorious for being a medicinal plant, but it’s a winner in the garden as well. This plant has drooping petals that surround a dark, usually purplish-brown cone-shaped center. The flowers last for a long time, are fragrant and make beautiful arrangements whether fresh or dried. The leaves are toothed, alternate and lance-shaped. Echinacea is excellent as a tall border plant and is very drought tolerant. It's also attractive to birds, bees, and butterflies. People collect the root of the plant for healing purposes during the fall of the plant's third or fourth year, but not after the fourth year. Echinacea is natural to start from seed.
