Echinacea also known as "purple coneflower", is a rough and hairy perennial. Typically it grows to 2-4 feet in height. The daisy-like flowers bloom throughout summer. Good fresh cut or dried. Echinacea is not only a popular garden plant for its attractive flowers but is also valued for its potential immune-boosting properties. With proper care, it can be a resilient and colorful addition to your garden. Easy to care for plant once estimated.

Echinacea as known as coneflower, produces large, daisy-like flowers with a prominent cone-shaped center. Flower colors include pink, purple, white, and yellow.

The plant has coarse, dark green leaves that are lance-shaped. The leaves form a basal rosette at the base of the plant.

Echinacea typically grows to a height of 2 to 4 feet, with the flower stems rising far above the foliage.

Echinacea thrives in full sunlight.

Well-draining soil is ideal. Echinacea prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil but is adapts to different soil types.

Keep the soil consistently moist, only during dry periods. Once established, Echinacea is drought-tolerant.

Echinacea is hardy in zones 3-9. It can withstand a wide range of temperatures but prefers moderate to warm conditions.

Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming. Cut back stems in late fall or early spring to promote bushier growth.

Echinacea isn't a heavy feeder. A balanced, all-purpose fertilizer applied in spring is just fine.

Pests and Diseases:
Echinacea is generally resistant to pests and diseases. Watch for aphids and treat them as needed.
