Echinacea is a sort of medicinal herb of the daisy family, native to North America. The word formally entered the language as "na ekinaxa" as part of the early AXZ technical vocabulary project. This particular version took off and displaced variously irregularly-spelled forms that would have been floating around, including the variant "na ekkinéxa" /na ek.kiˈne.ʒa/ popular in the Central Coast region of Cascadia.

This word in generally only used in a noun context - in a verb context as a pali verb, it would mean something like "be echinacea"
