Varieties of Echinacea

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~


  1. Hello, Andrea. Thank you for visiting my blog!

    I love the pics of your vegetable gardens and now I'm green (jewel) with envy of your collection of echinacia! This year I've started echinacia tennesseenis (an endangered species) and look forward to see if it survives our Ohio winter. Have fun in your garden! :-D

  2. Hi Kris!
    I'm going to search for that variety and see if it survives here too :) Looking forward to following your blog!

  3. If you cannot find the seeds for tennessenis, I still have some. Maybe you might want to trade for seeds from your ech varieties. The bees and butterflies really enjoy them so much. :-D

  4. I'd be more than Happy to trade seeds!
    I have another variety that I forgot the name of~ I'll have to look it up. Remind me in the fall and I'll send some seeds your way :)
