Echinacea is a genus, or group of herbaceous flowering plants in
the daisy family, Asteraceae. The nine species it contains are
commonly called coneflowers. They are endemic to eastern and
central North America, where they are found growing in moist to
dry prairies and open wooded areas. They have large, showy heads
of composite flowers, blooming from early to late summer.
The generic name is derived from the Greek word (echino),
meaning “sea urchin,” due to the spiny central disk. Some
species are used in herbal medicines and some are cultivated
in gardens for their showy flowers. A few species are of
conservation concern.
