    How to Plant Clasping Coneflower

    About Coneflower

    Coneflowers are course, rough-hairy, herbaceous perennials that are native to most prairies, meadows, and open woods of the central to southeastern United States. This flower produces blooms that are daisy-like, with attractively drooping petals in a wide range of colors.

    When to Plant Coneflower Seeds

    Plant in the late Fall, after the frost, or you can start indoors 6-8 weeks before your final frost date (after a period of 8-12 weeks of cold stratification).

    Where to Plant Coneflower Seeds

    Coneflowers do best in average, well-drained soil, exposed to Full Sun conditions. However, they can tolerate Partial Shade. Soil that is too rich may encourage green growth, but diminish your flowering.

    How to Plant Coneflower Seeds

    Broadcast sow your seeds directly onto the surface of the soil, and compress firmly. However, do not cover, as Coneflower seeds require sunlight to germinate.

    How to Care for Coneflower

    In areas with normal rainfall, manual watering won't be necessary. Coneflower is drought tolerant as well. Typically Coneflowers won't need any fertilization, but if flowers are small or not developing well, use a high phosphorus fertilizer. When your cornflower blooms begin to look spent, cut down the plant by 1/3 of it's height, which will help re energize the plant as well as store energy for subsequent seasons.
