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 July - October
Vase Life No conditioning necessary - they last 2-3 weeks in a vase. You can also remove the petals and use the central flower cone for drying.
