I Love growing Echinacea! Probably because I have such respect for the medicinal properties of Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea. At home if there's any sign of a cold or sore throat then out comes the Echinacea bottle!
Here's a new Echinacea we grew this year called "Green Jewel" It stays green all season and compliments the other plant colors~
Another new Echinacea for us is the "Pink Double Delight" LOVE IT!!
This one Looks Fantastic at the corner of the barn~ Love how the Yarrow & Pineapple Mint look next to it too~

My name is Andrea Mengel and I live with my family in the hilltown of Huntington Massachusetts. Our 1783 saltbox home sits on 20 beautiful acres of fields and woodlands that we enjoy tremendously! Here I get inspired to make all the goodies that I sell at the ~The Crow's Nest Primitive Shoppe~
