Who'd have thought they'd look so beautiful just hanging around upside down!
Now that's cool!
The root is the most powerful medicinal part, but one wouldn't want to disturb that. All parts are medicinal to an extent. Can't wait to hear how it turns out.
I didn't know you could do that:) Mine are not flowering just yet.
i enjoy seeing this view of the cone flowers...cone easier to spell....but I do enjoy the tea. have a wonderful day! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
not sure abt the flowers, prob good for tea. but it's the roots you want for tinctures. Do you have a good book on making tinctures?
I've been reading the Mountain Rose Herbfarm blog and how to make tinctures. It's so fascinating! I will be using the roots as well ... The Gardening Husband has said that he's taking out the purple cone flowers but leaving the white ones this year :(
I took a class a long time ago on how to make tinctures and I just thought all of it was so interesting. The class was given by a Native American man and we used mostly wild native plants. The coneflowers are so pretty!
Interesting, when I first got started with herbs/tinctures etc I ordered stuff from Mountain Rose. Have fun with it all.
your cone flowers look super strung up like thatandmaking your own tinctures sounds excitingHappy July!oxo
They are beautiful hanging there. Looking for to hearing how it turns out for you.
I use the root with great success.xoxoxox
