How To Grow

Echinacea prefers amply moist soil: when choosing a place to plant, consider natural areas that may provide more water. Seeds can be sown directly outdoors at a depth of 1/8 inch. Plant in loam, clay, or rocky material, and keep seeds moist until germination, which should occur after 15-30 days. Deadheading as well as cutting back stems will encourage new blossoms and ensure hearty plants. Flowers can be allowed to die and dry, however, if you prefer to let the plants self-sow and spread.
