The genus name and common name Echinacea derives from the Greek echinops, "hedgehog," in reference to the stiff, bristly flower head. The species names derive from Latin, with angustifolia meaning "narrow leaved," pallida meaning "pale" (in reference to the color of the flowers), and purpurea meaning "purple" (in reference to the color of the flowers).
The leaves are the only plant part considered edible, but they are rarely used as a food, as they are prickly and bitter. Echinacea has an aromatic, earthy flavor when prepared as a tea.
