From our Experience:
Echinacea is a beautiful addition to any garden. It feeds pollinators during the season and birds all winter.
Use dried leaves and flowers in an infusion within the first 8 months after harvest. The roots maintain medicinal value for up to 18 months. Test your Echinacea's effectiveness with the mouth buzz test - if it buzzes your mouth when you taste it, it’s active!
