This plant is a friend to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
Here we have the most popular native wildflower. This favorite is admired for its striking appearance, cold resistance, and pharmacological usefulness. All varieties of coneflowers are native to North America. 40 inches in height.
Purple coneflower seeds require stratification to grow. Directly sow the seeds in the garden in late fall at a depth of ¼ inch. For spring planting, it's necessary to place the seeds in soil and refrigerate them for about 3 months before sowing directly in the garden. Keep the soil consistently moist until germination, which should take a few weeks. Once the seedlings emerge, you can thin them out and transplant the plants to desired locations.
Purple coneflower doesn't like drought, so make sure to provide it with a consistently moist yet well-draining environment to avoid diseases. During the first year, regularly check for unwanted weeds.
