Please note: So plants may properly establish before winter, we recommend early fall planting of Echinacea in colder zones (Zone 5 and lower).
Echinacea, a North American genus in the Daisy family, has big, bright flowers that appear from late June until frost. Coneflowers thrive in average soils or hot, dry conditions and shrug off cold. Blooms last well, cut or dried, and the seeds in the large cone at the heart of the flower head provide nourishment for birds. Coneflowers are equally at home in formal borders or cottage gardens. Deer resistant. For more information on growing and care, click on Growing Guide.
