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.

Echium fastuosum, Echium candicans, Pride of Madeira

Click to see full-size image Echium fastuosum, Echium candicans
Family: Boraginaceae
Pride of Madeira
Origin: Madeira
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterBlue/lavender/purple flowersIrritatingAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

It's an evergreen perennial that flowers its heart out from spring to summer. It grows rapidly to form a multi-branched bush with grey-green leaves. They're characterised by large and impressive blue flowers. Large 12" intense blue flowers stand high above the foliage to make a brilliant garden display. The flowers intrigue up close, and the bush is fantastic from afar, growing to about 7 ft tall and spreading to 3 ft. A great selection for a rockery garden and a dry bank. Plant in a sunny and well-drained spot, any reasonable soil will do. It's coastal tolerant, and can handle dry conditions and a very light frost or two. After flowering, remove the spent flower heads and prune lightly. This Echium is easily propagated by seeds.

Edgeworthia chrysantha, Giant Leaf Paper Plant

Click to see full-size image Edgeworthia chrysantha
Family: Thymelaeaceae
Giant Leaf Paper Plant
Origin: China
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange flowersFragrantDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Edgeworthia chrysantha is a heavily-wooded deciduous shrub. The genus Edgeworthia comprises three very similar species from China and Japan. It is named after Michael Pakenham Edgeworth (1812-81), a part-time botanist, plant collector and employee of the East India Company. Apparently E. papyrifera has white flowers, not the yellow of E. chrysantha, though some botanists regard them variations of one species. The foliage is attractive, especially when young, but this is a plant grown for its flowers. They are bright yellow aging to creamy white, tubular and about 1cm long. Individually they are nothing much, but they are densely packed in 8cm diameter globose heads. The are very fragrant and open until late winter from buds that have been obvious from late autumn. The flowers are followed by dry, purplish-green berries known technically as drupes. A moist, well-drained, humus-enriched soil is best.

Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

A deciduous small tree or shrub, usually multistemmed, with an rounded crown. It has tangled branches which arch downwards or droop - this gives it its common name. The flowers grow in dense clusters on the branches. They are pale mauve, blue or white, with male and female flowers on different plants. They are sweetly scented. The fruits are round, orange to red, turning black when ripe. Fruits are edible. For traditional, medicinal purposes, the roots are powdered and used to treat small cuts in the skin. The plant is believed to bring luck to hunters and is also used to protect huts and crops from hail.

The Puzzle Bush is becoming very popular as a garden plant because it is hardy and drought resistant. It can easily grow from seed and cuttings. Do not sow the seeds too deeply. If they are sown properly, the seeds will take 10-20 days to germinate.

Ehretia rigida is very attractive to birds and insects and is therefore a wonderful addition to the wildlife garden.

A very small genus of tropical tree which was once referred to (and still often listed as) Carmona. The most widely known Ehretia species is the Fukien tea, a tropical shrub originating in Southern China and other parts of Southeast Asia. It is very popular for bonsai in China, but not a traditional favorite in Japan. It can be grown outdoors in warm climates, but is quite popular as an indoor bonsai.

Ehretia amoena - small tree, densely branched, olive green leathery leaves with hairs, white to pale mauve sweet smelling flowers in lax heads, fleshy edible fruits (not tasty), ethnomedical.

Ehretia obtusifolia - edible fleshy glossy orange to black fruits.

Keep well watered, reducing watering only slightly in winter. Never allow Ehretia to stand in water, or allow the soil to dry out completely.
