Echinacea is great for wildlife, known for attracting bees, birds and other pollinators. It has nectar/pollen rich flowers and, in Autumn, seeds for birds.

How to grow and care for your Echinacea

Echinacea purpurea Prairie Blaze Orange Sunset are easy to grow as they tolerate most soils (except very dry ones), and sturdy stems mean that staking is not required. They are tolerant of drought and can withstand colder climates, but benefit from mulching and winter protection.

In their native eastern and central North America, Echinacea grow on prairies and along the edges of woodlands, so they will thrive in places with full or partial sun through the day, they can become leggy if they experience too much shade. Echinacea will tolerate poor rocky soil, but will not grow in wet soil. Mulch well with compost when you plant these herbaceous perennials.

Deadhead the flowers as they fade, but leave the seed heads for the birds in Autumn. They benefit from being mulched with well-rotted manure or compost in Autumn. Lift congested clumps in Autumn or Spring, and cut them back as the new foliage emerges.
