Care and Growing Tips

Plants can be cut to the ground in late fall after the blooms are finished, or left intact for small birds like goldfinches to scavenge the seeds. If it's the latter, cut the plants back in late winter or early spring before the new growth emerges. Cut them to within 3-5 inches of the ground.
We do not mulch over our coneflowers in winter because we have noticed those plants do not tend to survive. They are incredibly hardy without any extra help.
Poor soil (as in, soil that is not fertilized or especially rich) is best for these meadow plants.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
