How To Grow
Coneflower is best and most easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil. It performs the best in full sun, but it can also be grown in partial shade. This an adaptable plant that doesn't mind difficult conditions: it is tolerant of drought, heat, and poor soil. Plants bloom as little as 20 weeks after sowing. These plants don't need to be deadheaded to continue blooming, although they will appear more attractive if spent blooms are removed. However, leaving some spent seed heads will allow the plant to self-seed and spread.
- Sowing rate: 2-3 seeds per plant
- Moisture: keep seeds moist until germination
