Planting Perennial Roots:
Perennials that come to you in pots should be watered well before planting also. Loosen and tight roots and plant at the same depth as the plant was in the pot. If the leaves are green and growing, you should protect them from frosts with mulch, reemay or any blanket. If white or pale yellow shoots have started to develop, protect them from wind and harsh sun until they green up. You can use any of the methods for protection as mentioned. Pay particular attention to watering any new plants during the first season. Once established plants generally have some drought tolerance and will only need to be watered if the season is hot and dry.
Plant with crowns just under soil surface. Space plants 18"-24" apart.
Echinaceae grow well in full sun to light shade in any well-drained soil and are quite drought tolerant once established. 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.
