Description for Echinacea angustifolia

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. This is an adaptable plant that is tolerant of heat, humidity, drought and poor soils. Divide clumps if they become overcrowded. Plants usually rebloom without deadheading, however prompt removal of spent flowers improves general appearance. May self-seed if at least some of the seed heads are left in place.

Planting and care

These tough plants have deep taproots that enable them to store some water for lean times. Plants increase to form broad clumps.
