PowWow Wild Berry is a 2010 All-American Selections Flower Winner and noted by AAS judges for “incredibly vivid deep rose-purple flowers” and “rapid and uniform flowering.” Echinacea purpurea is native to the Ozark Mountain region and found all throughout the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys. Native Americans were the first to use echinacea to treat burns, wounds, toothaches, and several other internal applications. Presently, echinacea is most commonly brewed as a tea to treat cold symptoms and synthesized echinacea is widespread in the pharmaceutical industry to bolster weak immune systems.
