Botanical Name: Echinacea Pallida


Echinacea pallida commonly known as the pale purple coneflower, is native to the central and eastern regions of the United States. For centuries, Indigenous American tribes have used it as a remedy for various ailments, including wounds, infections, and sore throats.


Echinacea pallida is an herbaceous, perennial plant that can reach up to 1m in height. It has long, narrow, lance-shaped leaves and distinctive, pale pink to purple flowers. The flowers are characterised by drooping petals surrounding a central cone that is typically orange to brown in colour. They bloom from early to late summer.

Growing Conditions

Echinacea pallida prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. Once established, it is drought-tolerant and can thrive in a range of soil types, although it performs best in rich and loamy soil. This plant is hardy in Australian climates similar to its native habitat, particularly in regions that experience a distinct dry season.

Medicinal Use

Known for its immune-boosting properties. Echinacea pallida is commonly used to prevent or reduce the symptoms of colds and flu. The roots and above-ground parts of the plant are used in teas, tinctures, capsules, and ointments. Its active compounds, including alkamides, polysaccharides, and glycoproteins, are believed to support immune function.

Culinary Use

Although not commonly used in cooking, the young stems and leaves can be eaten raw or cooked. The taste is somewhat bitter, so they are not widely used for culinary purposes.

Other Uses

Beyond its medicinal benefits, Echinacea pallida is also valued for its ornamental qualities in gardens and landscapes. Its attractive flowers attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, making it a beneficial plant for biodiversity.


While Echinacea pallida is generally considered safe for most people, it may cause allergic reactions in individuals sensitive to the Asteraceae/Compositae family. People with autoimmune diseases or those taking immunosuppressive medication should consult with a healthcare provider before using Echinacea products. Due to insufficient safety data, pregnant or breastfeeding women should also avoid its use.
