Plant your Cheyenne Spirit Echinacea in a location with full sun and well-draining soil. If you’re planting in a container, combine soil with sand to create soil that drains effectively.
To plant, dig a hole that is the same depth of the roots and two times as wide. After loosening the roots with your fingers, place the plant in the hole and backfill the dirt.
Water immediately after planting and continue to water regularly until the plant is well-established. Then, water as needed.
You can prune your Cheyenne Spirit Echinacea all the way back in the fall to prepare for new growth. However, you can also leave the flowers to dry on the plant to attract a host of songbirds during the winter.
