Plant Information

Here's a perennial bargain you wont see everywhere. Three Echinacea plants from a great group that includes some of the best pinks, whites and yellows--the most popular colors. Its a great way to fill your sunny garden with these famous perennials at a fraction of their usual prices.

By now, almost everybody knows that the original Echinaceas are the famous plains native wildflowers in pink and white. The common name of the common wildflower is Purple Coneflower. Actually, that flower is really pink, and then there's a variation of the wildling with white flowers. They're better know today by their botanical name: Echinacea.

For years before they were a favorite of the herbal medicine industry, they were always one of the loveliest groups of wildflowers on the plains.

The large pink-to-purple daisy, known as Purple Coneflower is a mainstay of all well-grown wildflower meadows, and is also a major color maker in perennial borders.

In recent years, the hybridizers have been adding new shades to the Echinacea group almost every year. And this mix includes three of the most popular, distinctly different colors.

          This is the second time trying to grow bare root echinacea and the second time they didn't even sprout. I presume they just don't grow from bare root well in the South.

          Comments about American Meadows Echinacea Mix:

          I ordered 6 mixed Echinsceas and after a few months I'm not at all pleased with the results.I'm not super qualified as a gardener though i think i followed the directions. of the six only 2 have flowered,2 flowers each one just about 10 inches tall.another one a few feet over from the 10 inch one would be about a foot tall if it were erect but is just flops over on the ground,these two are in a bed with a Japanese maple so maybe they get too much shade. 2 others are in 16" pots with Marigolds and they have leaves but no flowers.two others are nowhere to be found victims of squirrels I'm guessing. About 10 years ago i grew these and they lasted a few years nicely. can you tell me where i went wrong.Thank you

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
