Coneflowers and the Common Cold

The coneflower is a common flower that can be found in a million flower gardens, and they are simply beautiful. They are perennials and handle the cold very well. They are from the Echinacea family, and in Greek, the word echino means spiny  - like a sea urchin. When you look at all the spines that make up the center of the flower, you can see where they are considered a spiny flower. This flower is a herb that is considered an anti-viral herb, although, there is no real evidence that this helps prevent a cold or has any other medicinal properties.

While the purple is the most common color, the original color was orange. It is the orange coneflower that I have used in this counted cross stitch pattern.
