All echinaceas are beautiful and very medicinal with immune-enhancing properties. The tap-rooted varieties are reputed to be the most potent, but I've never found the common Echinacea purpurea lacking. Pollinators and beneficials love coneflowers, they are lovely in the perennial border and as a cut flower, and all parts of the plant are medicinal. Roots best harvested in the fall of their second or third year, leaves and flowers can be harvested all season.
