Cute As a Button Coneflower Blend
Spring Planting: this product will be shipped late April through May according to your hardiness zone.
Echinacea. We adore this stunning combination for extreme late-season colour! These vivid red and lemon yellow double-flowered Coneflowers will bloom tirelessly well into autumn. Reliable, long lasting blooms and low maintenance are the best features to describe this perennial favourite known as coneflower or the queen of the daisies. Once only found in gardens in a shade of purple, coneflowers are now available in an array of bright and cheery colours - it’s no wonder they have been crowned queen! Coneflowers are also bee friendly as well as attractive to many other beneficials and they make a great addition to wildflower meadows. Height 18-26". No. 1 root.

It is very important to plant as soon as possible after you receive them. If it is necessary to store them for a short time before planting them, open the plastic bags. If the roots appear dry, soak them for a few hours in warm water. Store in slightly moist peat moss in a cold, but not freezing location until you can plant. They can also be placed in pots of soil if planting will be delayed for more than 2 weeks. Use any peat-based potting soil and pots with drainage holes.
Soak bare-root perennials in water for a few hours before planting.
Echinaceae grow well in full sun to light shade in any well-drained soil and are quite drought tolerant once established. Plant with crowns just under soil surface. Space plants 18"-24" apart.
Deadhead the flowers to encourage continued bloom. Dig and divide in spring or fall if they start to die out in the center or outgrow the space.
