Purple Coneflowers produce large, fragrant pink flowers blooms at the beginning of April and May. The 3 to 5 ft flower stalks make them an excellent background planting for your landscape, or in a butterfly garden. They are excellent for cut flowers, lasting a week or longer after being cut. Cutting the flowers will promote an extended blooming season. The perennial plant does best when planted in full sun in any moist, well-drained garden soil, but may also be grown in partial sun. The plant is somewhat drought resistant once established. Coneflowers are hardy in USDA zones 3-9 Propagation is by seed, or by division in spring or fall. Root cuttings taken in the fall may also be successful. Like many perennials, Purple Cone Flowers should be lifted and divided after blooming when the plant's crown becomes to crowded. Usually this occurs in the third or fourth year; this is also when roots can be harvested for medicinal use. Most Purple Cone Flower cultivated for medicinal use is Echinacea purpurea and both the root and the above ground parts are used. Echinacea has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries. Melvin Gilmore writes that the Northern Plains Indians used it "as an antidote for snake bite and other venomous bites and stings and poisonous conditions...It was employed in the smoke treatment for headache in persons and distemper in horses". There are nine known species and it is suspected that all have similar medical properties, but the research is ongoing and no conclusions have yet been determined.

Eupatorium is a genus of flowering plants, depending on the classification system containing from 36 to 60 species, most of which are herbaceous perennial plants growing to 0.5-3 m tall, but a few are shrubs. It is found in temperate, subtropical and tropical regions in Europe, Africa, Asia and North to South America inhabiting mainly dry, sandy sites in woodland and thickets to pasture and swamps. Only a few Eupatorium species are in cultivation, often being grown for their attractive flowerheads in various shades of white, pink, violet and purple that are also nectar rich and attractive to bees and butterflies.

Species of Eupatorium have been used in folk medicine, for instance to excrete excess uric acid which causes gout, but they also contain toxic compounds that can cause liver damage.

Eupatorium purpureum (Sweet Joe Pye Weed) - one of the most common garden grown species.

Click to see full-size image

Wavy Gravy, Parsley Leopard Plant. Origin: Japan. Farfugium japonicum Shishi Botan (aka: Ligularia tussilaginea) is a very unusual Leopard Plant with heavily ruffled, crinkled gray-green leavesthat form a glorious tangle of tight, crispy edges, resembling gigantic curly parsley. The fuzzy leaves have that look as though they have been run through a meat grinder, leaving them with an open, three-dimensional look. Displays bright yellow flowers.

This plant does best in moist soil, and while it can take more sun than other varieties, it still needs shade from afternoon sun. Great indoor plant. A perfect full shade plant!
