#45 Echinacea (Purple Cone Flower)

My mom gave me a few plants, and they've spread to fill my front flower bed wonderfully. At least they did until someone pulled up and stole a couple of the ones in front.
They're pale this year...I don't know why.
They're supposed to be good for colds...but I don't know if you're supposed to use the leaves, flowers or roots. I could find out and harvest some, if I was so inclined.
