Echinacea, or coneflower, is renowned for its striking appearance and noted health benefits. This plant flowers with large, colorful blooms with raised centers. Coneflower is native to North America. It has adapted to other climatic conditions and grows well in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 9. Its flowers add to the garden's aesthetics, providing essential nectar to visiting wildlife.


Sow coneflower seeds anytime from late fall to early spring. If planting in spring, 2-4 weeks of cold stratification improves germination. Start them indoors and transplant out after the last frost. Space the plants 18-24 inches apart. Make sure not to disturb taproots. Coneflowers can thrive in variable soil conditions. However, rich soil with plenty of organic matter and strong sunlight results in larger blooms.


Echinacea plants are relatively easy to care for. They prefer a sunny location and need moderate watering. For vigorous growth and blooming, remove dry flowers regularly. Echinacea can also be divided every few years. This maintains the plant’s health, and it’s a good way to spread this beautiful plant in the garden. Harvest the leaves and flowers during the blooming season. Use it in teas and other herbal remedies. The roots can also be harvested after a few years of growth, as they hold concentrated beneficial properties.
