5x Pink Coneflowers - Bare-rooted - Plant

Echinacea - purpurea
Description:
Is this nature's sun hat? The Echinacea purpurea is shaped just like one. The heart of the flower is a raised globe. The pink petals below it catch the sun's rays. Bees and butterflies love this plant. You will receive the Echinacea purpurea as bare-root stock in sugar cane sacking. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. They are winter-hardy perennials. They can be planted at any time, provided that the ground is not frozen. This plant loves the sunshine, so a location in full sun is best. Make sure that the soil around the roots remains moist. But it should never be soaking wet. Echinacea purpurea can be planted separately around the garden. Flower pots on the patio, roof terrace or balcony work well, too.

Planting+
Purple coneflower will thrive in drier gardens than most, the really nice thing about this plant is that it will also tolerate some light shade and good soil. The only thing that will shorten the lifespan is heavy clay or constant damp soil. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in some compost and cow manure grains. Plant the purple coneflower at the appropriate depth in a suitable sized hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.
Care+
The Purple Coneflower is an easy-to-grow perennial that can remain in the same spot for several years. Be sure to prevent the soil around its roots from drying out. Blooms right through June to August, particularly if deadheaded and not allowed to go to seed. Its stems above the ground will die back in the winter. Over winter, cover this plant with a layer of fallen leaves. Wet soil is poorly tolerated during the winter. In spring, cut off all of its leaves and soon there will be some new shoots growing above the ground.
