Planting Guides

Tips For Growing Echinacea (Purple Coneflower)

This genus is invaluable for the mid- to late-summer garden, bringing color into our plantings when many spring bloomers have gone green for the season. They are native to the eastern half of the U.S. and are most commonly found growing in prairie habitats.

Echinacea thrive in our gardens when provided with well drained soils, plenty of sunshine and moderate to dry moisture conditions depending on the species and cultivars. Healthy individual coneflowers will grow in the garden for 3 to 5 years. Species and cultivars raised from seed will often reseed themselves to continue their presence in our gardens.

'Rocky Top Hybrid' echinacea, while xeric, appreciates extra moisture provided by some easily accomplished water harvesting techniques. Plant it in a wide, shallow depression and mulch amply or place right up against the north side of a low, wide rock, tilted to shed water on the Echinacea's side.

Fall Care: You can leave the dried seed heads for winter, as they provide food for birds. Echinacea easily reseeds itself. You can cut back seed heads in the fall, where you don't wish the plant to reseed. Spring Care: Cut back the dry stalks to the crowns of the plant in early spring. Pull any unwanted seedlings in spring. They are easy to pull when young.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Echinacea Cheyenne Spirit:

      I never planted many flowers before. Planted these for my honeybees. They started a little slow, after a month they suddenly put on more leaves and then flowers. And they keep on flowering. Just ordered more and more types of coneflowers. I am really proud of them.

        I opened the box this arrived in immediately having taken it from the hands of the delivery man. The plant was wilted and very dry. I planted it and nursed it, so that by the fall it had a meager bloom. Not the first live plants to arrive in very poor condition. Latest were two milkweeds. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIGH COUNTRY GARDENS!

          I planted this shortly before our second hail storm, so ... one of the plants did not survive, but the other did and did well the rest of the summer. I am looking forward to see how it will thrive next summer!

          First off, I love love love the colors that these plants produce!! A variety of colors of flowers on one plant? Wow. But. Yesr 2, and my plants are still only 6" tall. They are producing beautiful flowers...on short little stems. Not sure what happened. They are pretty, but not tall, as advertized. Maybe next year?

          Q & A

          Suggested Companion Plants:

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
