Description

Hugely long-flowering border perennial and cut flower, which lasts up to two weeks in the vase. It's also a tip-top pollinator plant, rich in nectar through late summer and autumn when foliage is in short supply.

Care Tips

Echinacea do not like to be crowded, give them space to establish in your garden and avoid spots that are wet in winter. Mulch around the plants in autumn but not over the crowns. Once planted, they are best left alone; they do not transplant well.
