Echinacea Growing Guide

Planting

Echinacea are best planted in the spring or summer in soil that easily drains and a position in full sun. Avoid planting during the autumn as they are prone to rotting in winter.

Pruning

Cut at the base of the stems after the plant has died back in late autumn.

The plant can also be reduced in late May to enable a stockier form to grow.


Echinacea Planting Ideas

Echinacea work well when planted with tall grasses and other late flowering perennials, however once planted they do not like to be disturbed so are best planted where they can produce a large mass.


Echinacea Fact

Echinacea plants have been a popular substance in complementary medicines with the ideology that they help to enhance the immune system.
