    Coneflower - Echinacea

    Coneflowers are some of the most recognizable wildflowers due to their upright stature and their bright white, pink, purple, or yellow petal array. The central portion of the flower is brown and upright, making it appear cone-like. The versatile plant is hardy to USDA zones 3 through 9. They do well in hot, dry environments that other flowers, particularly greenhouse cultured annuals, are not likely to withstand. Echinacea are perennial plants, so gardeners can plan on their return year after year. Though they die back in winter, they re-emerge in spring and gain their full potential by summer. Their lower leaves are oval, and dark green. Their straight green stems can reach heights up to 4 feet. These same stems make them well suited for floral arrangements. Many gardeners grow them for the purpose of using them as cut flowers. A stand of coneflowers can spread up to 28 inches in width, making them well suited for mass plantings. They do well in full sun to part shade, so avoid growing them against the side of a house or solid fence. Their growth rate is moderate, which means that they will provide you with color later in the growing season. Mature plants do not require much watering or fertilizer and are capable of withstanding heat and drought. They grow best in light, well-draining soil that is kept suitably moist. The best time to plant Echinacea is in the fall. This gives the roots time to settle in over the winter before the start of the growing season. During the early spring the plants require the most moisture, but once they are blooming they do not require as much water. These plants are often found in rock gardens, in large planting beds in full sun or as back border plants. Sunny, open yards that receive direct sun are well-suited for these colorful, hardy plants. Consider tearing out sections of a sun-burnt lawn and establishing a bed of these flowers. They will retain color throughout the summer months, attract pollinators and add to your home's appearance.
