Echinacea purpurea ‘PowWow Wild Berry’

Coneflowers are sturdy and easy-care perennials that perform best in a sunny location. Flowers are very attractive to butterflies. Outstanding for cutting. Removing faded flowers regularly will greatly increase the blooming period. Leaving dried seed heads on the plants at the end of the season will provide food for wintering birds and add interest to the winter garden. They're also useful in dried arrangements. Plants may be easily divided in early spring. Any seedlings that appear can also be moved at that time.

Feed: Coneflowers are not heavy feeders, but benefit from fertilizer in the spring when new growth appears.  Application of 1 tablespoon of 12-6-6 fertilizer per plant, you can also use water-soluble fertilizer designed for blooming plants in the spring.

Prune: Plants rebloom well without deadheading, however prompt removal of spent flowers encourages continued bloom and improves general appearance. Divide clumps in the Fall when they become overcrowded, about every 4 years.
