Echinacea / ˌ ɛ k ɪ ˈ n eɪ ʃ i ə / is a genus, or group of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family. The genus Echinacea has ten species, which are commonly called coneflowers . They are found only in eastern and central North America , where they grow in moist to dry prairies and open wooded areas.What are the characteristics of Echeveria paradoxa?
It has the same strigose pubescence, bright green stems and yellow pollen that characterize E. paradoxa var. neglecta. Polyacetylenes identical to those found in E. pallida have been identified in its roots, as well as echinacoside, a caffeic acid derivative found in E. angustifolia var. angustifolia (Bauer and Foster 1991).What are the dangers of Echinacea?
Echinacea has also been linked to allergic reactions, including asthma, shortness of breath, and one case of anaphylaxis. Muscle and joint pain has been associated with Echinacea, but it may have been caused by cold or flu symptoms for which the Echinacea products were administered.
