How to Grow
An outstanding perennial that is very easy to grow. Loves full sun but will tolerate partial shade. Attracts beneficial insects such as pollinators and butterflies. Seeds are an important late summer and early fall food source for Gold Finches. There is rich folklore associated with Echinacea, attributing extracts of its roots with the ability to heal the common cold. This robust perennial will turn heads wherever planted and withstand more heat and drought than most. Sow outdoors September through October or start indoors Feb to Mar 1st for bloom the first season. Indoors use a soil-less growing medium. Keep sown medium moist for nine (9) weeks at 4 C (39 F), then move to 10 C (50 F) for germ. After germination, grow under lights at a cool temperature. Transplant outside after last spring frost. Must have full sun exposure.
