Echinacea purpurea

 

30 Seeds|

 

Coneflower White Swan is the white version of Purple Coneflower. Together, the two make a great show. (Echinacea purpurea) White Swan is marvelously floriferous, and the scent evokes a summer day in the country. The pure white blooms are 4 to 5 inches wide, their hue accentuated by the large, knoblike golden-brown cones, which bring in the butterflies and bees and, after the very long bloom season has passed, are superb for drying and using in Everlasting arrangements.  These long-stemmed, bushy plants reach 4 feet tall, holding their blooms overhead like gay umbrellas on very sturdy stems from late spring till the cool temperatures of fall . Perfect in any naturalized woodland or meadow setting.

Tips on How to Grow Echinacea (Coneflower)

When to start outside:

  • Sow in early spring, cover seed with 1/8" soil 3-4 weeks before average last frost. Germination 10-20 days.
  • Maintain a temperature of 70-75° F during germination
  • Can plant as late as 2 months before first fall frost. 
  • If started early, Echinacea will bloom the first year.

 

 

When to start inside:

  • Sow 8 weeks before average last frost.It may take up to 2 months to germinate (May bloom 1st year if started indoors.)
  • Sow outdoors anytime in spring or summer, up to two months before first fall frost
  • Photoperiod response: intermediate-day plant will flower most rapidly and uniformly at 13-14 hours daylength.
  • Vernalization: not required but beneficial as flowering will occur two to three weeks earlier following a minimum of ten weeks cold treatment.
  • Flower timing: Sown in January as Spring production will flower naturally in middle to late June. Sown from July to early September for overwinter production; will flower late May to early June of the following year
