Care Tips Echinacea do not like to be crowded, give them space to establish in your garden and avoid winter wet spots and heavy mulching over crowns in winter. Once planted, they are best left alone — they do not transplant well. Deadhead to encourage flowering into the autumn after the main August-September season. Propagate by rooting cuttings from late autumn to early winter.
Flowering June - September

Reviewed 7th August 2019 by Mrs Longman

Initially complained when this was delivered as it stated 9cm plant. 4cm shoot arrived and I was told 9cm meant pot size ( why not say that then). Another was sent. One is doing well with several flowers. The other isn't - only one flower

Another very small plant. It has just popped it’s one and only flower. It’s really pretty but it’ll take a good few seasons to be lovely.

Fabulous plant - but will it survive the winter? My past experience of this is that it’s not that hardy despite tender care, but can’t resist buying it!

This did not seem to have grown at all. Maybe it was in the wrong place. I had high hopes for it and wanted it to do well. Maybe it will emerge next year!

This was my favourite flower last year - I'd make sure that I checked it every day just to see what colour it was that day !
A bit slow to start but when it did get going it flowered up until first frosts.
Looking forward to more this year..
