ECHINACEA - NARROW LEAF - Pinetree Garden Seeds - Flowers,Herbs



Echinacea Angustifolia Perennial.

The true medicinal echinacea, this variety grows to 5 feet in width and is covered with pale pink to violet 2 inch blooms. Echinacea was widely used by the plains indians and is still in use today as an anti-bacterial, an immune system stimulant, and as an insecticide. Seeds are best cold treated prior to planting. Cold-treating simply involves placing the seed in an airtight bag or container and putting the seeds in your freezer for two to four weeks to simulate a winter's exposure. When you remove the seeds from the freezer, leave them in the bag or container without opening for several hours to let them slowly get back to room temperature before planting.The root of the plant is the primary medicinal contributor. 50 seeds
