Care and Growing Tips

It is the gardener's choice whether to deadhead the spent blooms or leave them on the plant for goldfinches to have the seeds. If the stems are left on the plant, you should cut them back to 3-5 inches above the ground in late winter or early spring before the new growth emerges.
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.

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.
