Growing & Maintenance TipsGrow in full sun in well-drained soil. Tolerates very dry soil. Plant in the border, native plant garden, naturalized area, prairie or wildflower meadow. Combine with Glade, Pale Purple and Yellow Coneflower for nice effect. Deadheading will prolong bloom time. Remove seed heads to reduce production of new plants.
Interesting NotesGenus name, 'Echinacea' comes from the Greek word "echinos" meaning hedgehog in reference to the spiny center cone.
