Echinacea is one of those plants that has been around for a long time. It has a brilliant flower on top, stands pretty tall. One of the great things about it is that it is good for clustering. It is right next to this flocks which are starting to bloom a nice pail pink with this flower right there are you could see in the zebra grass it is a nice cluster flower. The echniacea plant really exceed itself this top would turn into little black seed, they would drop down, and I really only planted maybe 2 plants about 10 years ago and as you can see there are literally 100s of them here because they reseed there selfs. Now if you heard the word echinacea before and wondering where you heard it, it is used by many as a form of herbal medicine I don't know what part of the plant that you would use but it is used for colds and these are one of those plants that is used not only for decoration but also to help you get a little healthier.
