A selection of medicinal herbs - purple coneflower (echinacea purpurea and angustifolia) - the two varieties of echinacea

        A SELECTION OF MEDICINAL HERBS - PURPLE CONEFLOWER (ECHINACEA PURPUREA AND ANGUSTIFOLIA) - THE TWO VARIETIES OF ECHINACEA
Then Black Eagle showed me this highly prized plant, or plants to be more exact. I discovered that it was the coneflower, Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea. One of the two varieties, Echinacea angustifolia, has a tap root, and I still remember how deep I had to dig to get it out. The other variety has a rootstock and does not penetrate quite so deep into the earth.
The chief explained that both plants were equal in their effect. But having heard so many marvellous things about what this plant could do I began to think it was almost too good to be true. Still, I took some seeds back home with me and began to grow Echinacea in the Swiss lowlands as well as at an elevation of 1,600 m (4,500 feet); that was in Teufen and in Brail (in the Engadine), where I used to have a house with a large garden. At first, the plants were quite sensitive to the cold in the mountains, but I persevered for ten years until they became acclimatised and began to produce flowers.
