How to Spread the Love of Your Echinacea Purple Coneflower Plants

This planting area started out as 6 small clusters of plants grew from Burpee seeds. After the plants went through the blooming season in 2015, I let the blooms die off while still attached to the plant. Once the cone tops have dropped all their blooms and turned completely brown / black, snip (deadhead) the cone tops. Simply dig a small hole and drop the cone tops in spots where you want to fill in your area. I only partially cover the cone top with dirt. Next season you will have new Echinacea Purple Coneflower plants. Dig up as needed and share with others.

Deadhead this and partially cover with soil

A bloom that self-deadheaded! I'm leaving it.
