|Lore||The root of Echinacea is a Native American medicinal and has been rediscovered for its immune stimulating ability as an herbal supplement.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Quickly reaches 2 ft. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||A more modestly sized native for small spaces and urban gardens. Vital in the American meadow and prairie garden palette.
