Echinacea is super easy to grow, and it's muted tones and the downwards facing petals have our hearts. This White variety is a nice change from the traditional pink, and we love the greenish tint to the center that offsets the creamy white petals.
Echinacea is often used medicinally as a boost to the immune system or help the body to fight infection. To use it medicinally, you can drink it as a tea. Dry the petals of the flower, and then steep 1 teaspoon of dry petals per 1 cup of boiling water for 15 minutes. You can also create a tincture, simply fill a clean jar about halfway with fresh or dried petals, cover with vodka, then add a lid and let sit someplace dark and cool for a few months, then strain.
Planting conditions: Likes regular water while blooming, but happy in hot and dry conditions, and drought tolerant once established. Very easy to grow.

Perennial: Echinacea is perennial, and will come back each year, in zones 3-10.
