Planting Perennial Roots:
It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more than a day, before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
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.
