|Echinacea - A Favorite in the Garden!|
PERENNIAL. Echinacea is a long-blooming, adaptable, and easy to grow native plant that looks right at home in a wildflower meadow, an English cottage garden, or more formal gardens.
A fantastic plant for pollinator gardens that will naturalize if mature seedheads are allowed to drop seed on the ground. Birds, especially goldfinches, will feed on the seedheads in the fall and winter. All echinaceas are a great cut flower; deadhead to promote reblooming.
Plant in full sun to part sun in average well-drained soil. Divide about every 4 years. Deer tolerant. Named after the Greek word for hedgehog or sea urchin. Zones 3-5 to 8.
Only some of our echinaceas are showing color at this time, but fall planting will make for sturdy springtime plants ready to burst into bloom next summer.
Echinacea purpurea - The straight species. Purplish pink blooms with striking cone center, blooms June to August, native to Eastern North America. The flowers of Echinacea purpurea and its various cultivars provide nectar for native bees, butterflies and skippers.

|FROM WILMA: From slight inclines to steep slopes, many of us have a bank that presents a landscape challenge. After several years of keeping a bank in front of our house neatly mulched with pine straw, we are developing it into a pollinator area. Passionflower vines, berry plants, and pollinator plants are gradually taking over. It is less work, more interesting, and a benefit to wildlife.|
From my kitchen window I can see a dogwood tree that is heavily laden with berries. It is fun to watch lots of birds feast on them! Native trees, shrubs, and perennials provide food, shelter, and sometimes host plants for many forms of wildlife.
The Garden Center is well-stocked with a variety of native plants. I have my eye on a few perennials and a spicebush I plan to add to my pollinator areas. Fall is the optimum time to plant!
