Pale-Purple Echinacea
Echinacea pallida
Uses: Medicinal Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 5-9)
When to Sow: Spring/Late Summer/Early Fall Ease of Germination: Moderate
Similar to the narrowleaf species in both appearance and medicinal action. The taller (1m/40”) and the paler of the two, and may, in fact, be the more important commercially because much of what is sold as E. angustifolia may actually be this species. R. Bauer and H. Wagner of the University of Munich, the leading European research group working on echinacea, suggest that E. pallida is the correct name for the plant commonly traded in Europe as E. angustifolia. Like E. angustifolia, germination rates are often less than 40% and may benefit from pretreatments suggested for E. angustifolia.
