Echinacea: Herb of the Year

From the plains to the garden, the 2002 herb of the year serves as a wellness aid and ornamental perennial.



The petals of the Tennessee coneflower turn upward rather than drooping like all other echinacea species.

E. purpurea, or purple coneflower, is excellent as an ornamental plant. It is hardy in Zones 3 to 9. It tolerates summer heat and humidity.
Coneflowers require some deadheading, but you’ll enjoy them more if you cut them and arrange them.
