Echinacea: Purple Cone Flower

- by Kris Jean

This week's theme: Herbs

Herbs are such versatile plants. They are cultivated and they grow wild. Herbs are woven into our folklore and our traditions. We use them to heal. Their scents soothe and please. Herbs add flavor to our food and their infinite variety bring beauty to our gardens and to our world.

Not only am I beautiful,
I can be useful too.
Echinacea is used by many to stimulate thier immune systems and prevent infections.
My favorite thing about this flower is the pollen is orange against the brilliant deep purples of the center -it really has a great wow factor.
The root seems to be the most benificial part of the plant when it comes to medicinal purposes but I couldn't NOT paint the more beautiful counterpart.
This painting is SOLD
