The Purple Coneflower was one of the most beneficial medicinal wildflower species for Native Americans. Many tribes used the Purple Coneflower for pain relief, as an anti-inflammatory, to dress wounds, treat toothaches, colds, and sore throats. They also discovered the plant could be used as an antidote for snakes bites.
A note about seed balls:
Seed balls, also known as seed bombs, protect the seeds from erosion, foraging, and many other factors. This protective property often results in a slower germination cycle. Wildflowers are also highly variable in their germination rates. Please be patient with your seed balls. If you placed them in a suitable location, soil, and climate, when the seeds are ready, they will grow!
