Echinacea purpurea and E. augustifolia. A medicinal root used over the ages as a wound poultice, an immune system booster or a common cold treatment, our combination of Echinacea augustifolia and E. purpurea varieties is best and most economically grown for its roots. Over time, with just modest root harvest, its purple flowers are also a welcome addition to summer beds. Thriving in most soil conditions with full to dappled sunlight, Echinacea seeds should be soaked in tepid water for 24 hours prior to starting indoors at least 6 weeks before the last spring frost date
