The photo above is of the herb Echinacea which was much valued by Native Americans and frontiersmen of the USA as a remedy for snakebite, fevers and for cleansing and healing suppurative wounds. The early settlers adopted the plant as a home remedy for colds and influenza, and it became popular with the 19th century Eclectics. Three species are used medicinally: E angustifolia, E. pallida (Nutt.) and E. purpurea (L.)
