Echinacea (Coneflower) is one of those grand perennials that is considered a garden staple. Plant heights can range from dwarf to tall, and the flowers are daisy-like and cone-shaped. The most common flower color is purple, but other colors have recently come onto the market. This North American native thrives in hot and sunny conditions and withstands drought. A long season bloomer (mid-summer to early fall), the taller varieties make excellent cut and dried flowers, and the flower cones that ultimately produce seeds are a magnet for both butterflies and birds. Coneflower is attractive when massed or grouped with other perennials. It performs well in the middle of a perennial border or in naturalized areas.

Coneflower should be grown in full sun to light shade. Light shade will enhance the rich colors of the petals in hot weather. It is relatively drought resistant and should be divided in the spring every 4 years.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.
