Popular herb Echinachea can be found in summer at Washington Square Park
Echinachea (also called coneflower) – typically purple (lavender), pink and white – can be found in the park. Read more about this flowering herb here and here. Echinachea is used in teas, tinctures, and capsules, often for healing from colds & flu and to boost the immune system, among other health benefits! (I think the yellow flower here may be another type of daisy although it looks quite similar.) This shot was taken a couple weeks ago.
