How to Plant Purple 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.

5.00/5 Based on 4 Reviews

  1. wait and see!

    It takes 2 years to get blossoms from this plant started from seed. To those of you who reviewed it and said they only got grasses the first year....congratulations you have them started!

  2. Very beautiful

    I purchased a pound of seeds and tossed them on part of a hillside. The first year was just the green leaves. The second year I had several flowers and the third year was a breath-taking view of purple. I plan to purchase more seeds late winter and toss them on the upper side of the hill.

  3. Beautiful Bright Blooms

    This is a beautiful plant. I have had a bit of difficulty growing it from seed by direct sowing. I only got one plant out of six seeds sown last year. It could be my error or poor soil. I am very pleased with the plant I did get. It is pushing five feet tall with a few beautiful bright purple/pink blooms and many more to come. I saw my first butterfly on it. Hope to get more plants to grow.

  4. good
