Single Packet of 20 Seeds

Grow this special mixture of Coneflowers, aptly named "Rainbow Mixture" from fresh Echinacea flower seeds. This specially blended mixture of Coneflowers produces a wave of vibrant colors including red, yellow, white, pink, and purple. Plants will reach a mature height of about 24 to 48 inches tall and display 3 to 5 inch flowers atop bushy yet attractive foliage. Coneflowers are perennial plants that often bloom through the summer months, die with the first killing frost and return the following year from roots when the weather is warm.

Coneflower or “Echinacea” (Ek-i-nay-sha) plants are often included in small to large butterfly gardens as they will attract a variety of beneficial insects. Bumblebees, Butterflies, hummingbirds and ladybugs to name a few, will make an appearance when the plants display their vibrant colored flowers. This mixture provides a range of various shapes from thin petals, to thick petals.

Save The Honey Bees

Did you know that if honey bees cease to exist, that life would also cease to exist as well. Because honey bees are responsible for the pollination 1/3 of the worlds crops, if they suddenly disappeared, so would 1/3 of our food source. Coneflowers are known to attract an array of beneficial insects, so it is a perfect candidate for attracting honey bees and other bumblebees to the garden. The honey bee population has been on the decline for a few years now, but we can always help by planting flowers, such as the Coneflower to assist them.

Sowing The Seed

Coneflowers can be established indoors, or directly outdoors as well. If sown indoors, we recommend using peat pots to prevent root shock later on. Begin by sowing the seeds at a shallow depth of 1/8" under topsoil. Transplant or direct sow outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Because the recommended sowing depth is shallow, it may be best to start outdoors on a calm day.

Growing Conditions

Coneflowers will enjoy an area of full sunlight to light shade & prefer a temperature of at least 70F to 75F. It's not too picky on soil and can tolerate short droughts as well, just make sure that the soil is well drained and not too soggy. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water daily until germination has occurred.

Germination & Growth

Your seeds will begin to germinate within 7 to 21 days after sowing. The plants will reach a mature height of around 24 to 48 inches tall and can spread a good 18 to 24 inches wide. The seeds can be be spaced about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Ruby Star Coneflower produces beautiful, pink-red flowers throughout the summer months, attracting an array of beneficial insects to the garden.
