Description

More commonly known as Coneflowers, Echinacea are flowering herbaceous perennials in the daisy family. 'Halo White Purple' has striking purple and white recurved flowers with a prominent central cone. The flowers are long-lived, excellent for cutting and extremely attractive to pollinators. We recommend planting Echinacea in drifts towards the middle of a border, or among Grasses & Rudbeckia in a prairie-style planting scheme.

Planting Conditions

Echinacea are low maintenance plants provided you give them a sunny spot and a well-drained soil, these perennials don't like wet feet in the winter. The best flower colour occurs in a sunny position.

Watering & Feeding

During the first year keep the soil moist, but once established they are fairly drought tolerant. If you see leaves wilting or drooping, dry or cracked soil, or dry leaves that turn yellow, you should water your plant right away. If you see any of the characteristics just mentioned, be sure to give your plant a good watering, and then pay close attention to it for the next few weeks to be sure it is getting the moisture that it needs

General Care

In general, keep Echinacea on a lean diet, just fertilising once in the spring with an organic fertiliser. Remove faded flowers to prolong flowering. Cut down to soil level after they stop blooming or after a frost. Alternatively, you can leave the seed heads as they are over the winter. This can help promote self-seeding.
