Part of the You Can Learn Landscaping and Gardening series.

The Broadleaf Purple Coneflower produce summer blooms in purple, pink, crimson-red and white.

You should plant in full sun in well drained areas. They are hardy in hot dry areas and withstand poor soil conditions like alkalinity and heavy soils. They are native American wild-flowers.

Because of the height of the Broadleaf Purple Coneflower, use the plants in the back of the garden to add height and full summer blooms. If you have natural grasses and flowers in your garden, be sure and add these beauties.

Though they withstand dry summer heat, water if they begin to wilt. You can stake the flowers if they fall over.

The hybrids are hearty and strong, but any fallen seeds do not come back true to the parent plant and revert back to the original parent plant. If you must fertilize, make it early in spring before grwoth begins. You can deadhead to lengthen the flowering season, but you will lose the interesting seed cones.
