I love Echinacea (purple cornflower) but, I can never get them to grow. Do you have any tips.
Hello positivelysimple! Much success depends on where you live, as per what planting zone you are in. I can't tell by your profile, so I will give you advice on mid-range zones. Echinacea really grows very well in just about any soil. We have a lot of clay in our soil here in Southern Oklahoma and mine always do well and spread each year. They are a full sun flower and won't bloom well without it. They are drought tolerant, but of course like a thorough watering about once a week. When I deadhead mine, I will take the dead flower and poke it down into the wet soil, and up pops a new plant in a few weeks. Remember to give them full sun and water at least once a week. They should really do well. Good luck with them this year!
Thank you so much for such great tips. Hopefully, I can get some to grow.
