Description

Soil:

Any well-draining soil will do for coneflowers. They can even handle sandy or gravelly soils that are tough to grow in, though coneflowers prefer soil that is high in organic matter.

Light:

Coneflowers need full sun (> 6 hours sun) environments. Plant them in a spot with at least 6 hours of full sun daily. If coneflowers are planted in too much shade, the stems may flop or strain to reach the sun.

Water:

Water regularly during the first season to encourage good root growth. Though coneflowers handle heat and dry conditions well once established, they appreciate regular watering and flowering more if they are not stressed!

Fertilizing:

Little to no fertilizer is required when growing coneflowers. Over-fertilizing will cause spindly growth and weaker blooms, so once in the spring a granular garden fertilizer is more than sufficient.

Winterizing:

Avoid damp spots. Do not heap mulching over the coneflower crowns in winter, as this can cause rot. Leave the foliage and old flowers standing for winter (birds enjoy the seed heads), then trim back or remove spent foliage in early spring before new growth emerges.

Maintenance & Pruning:


Once planted, they are best left alone, as they do not transplant well! Deadheading (snipping off the spent blooms) is unnecessary but increases new flower production.

My plants arrived in perfect condition. I’m very impressed with the way it was packaged. I’m very pleased with your service.
Thanks for good marketing.
I’m interested on exotic plants for outdoor garden that are deer resistant and are perineal and also on sale to be more affordable.

One good, one damaged

Although your packaging is exceptional as is your plant quality, please note that one of the two plants had a great deal of roots extending outside the pot bottom. They were damaged dried out in shipping. Had to CUT the pot apart to remove roots. So my advice: Try to send out your plants before they reach that level of root bound growth. Second smaller plant was just fine. I DO not need any kind of refund. Both plants will ultimately grow just fine.

Hello! We are sorry that you weren't fully satisfied with your plants. While we try our best to provide exceptional service, some factors, like shipping and handling, are outside our control, and issues like this can sometimes happen. At our greenhouse, we do promote root growth in order for it to be easily established in gardens. The important thing when it comes to purchasing plants, whether online or in a garden center, is that they have a full, robust root system, and that's what we prioritize in our greenhouses. The more roots a plant has, the more energy it can put into growing once it is planted in your garden. We do keep our plants trimmed to encourage strong root development! Thank you for your feedback, and please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with in the future, happy gardening!
