When to Plant Coneflowers

Echinacea plants, like many perennial flowers, can be planted in either the spring or the fall. Most of our coneflowers are shipped in the spring and should be planted after all danger of frost has passed. If planting coneflowers in the fall, they should be in the ground about six weeks before the first frost so the roots can get established.

Where to Plant Coneflowers

These versatile perennials shine in a variety of garden settings—from native and pollinator gardens, to naturalized areas, to meadows and mixed perennial flower beds. Coneflowers are sun-loving perennials and will grow in full sun to partial shade. Plant coneflowers where they will receive at least 4 hours of direct sunlight daily. When buying echinacea plants, pay attention to the variety's height. Some coneflowers may grow 18 inches tall while others grow 3-4 feet. Coneflowers should be spaced about 18-24 inches apart.

How to Plant Echinacea

Coneflowers are very adaptable to a wide range of soil types and conditions. They'll tolerate acidic, clay, dry, loamy and sandy soil, as long as it's well-drained. To improve drainage in the soil, mix compost into the soil before planting.

Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the plant's roots without bending them. The roots should be just below the soil surface with the crown at the soil level. The top of the plant should be even with the soil level or slightly above it. Water the plants.

Coneflowers are drought tolerant, once established. When they are getting established, they should receive about 1 inch of water weekly. Read more about planting and caring for Echinacea Coneflowers.

When Echinacea Plants Bloom

Coneflowers will bloom for months, from midsummer to fall. To encourage more blooms, deadhead or remove the spent flowers. Coneflowers also are long-lasting as cut flowers.
