How to Use PowWow Wild Berry Coneflower in the Landscape

A perfect choice for an incredible “Thrillers” in containers, you’ll be amazed at the versatility of this small perennial. Try planting up several matching containers along your patio or front walk; or jazz things up with a mixed collection of glazed planters placed in a triangle near your front entrance.

Have you ever heard that pink light bulbs are used in elegant restaurants because they make everyone’s skin look fabulous? That same trick works for plants.

This special shade of pinky-purple works beautifully in just about any color pot, including orange or purple. The hues will pick up on that underlying tone in the petals. Of course, it looks great in neutral-colored pots, too.

The PowWow line is a great height for use throughout the landscape. It can be used as a facer or edging plant to liven up the look of mature evergreens. It creates a fantastic colorful backdrop to smaller plants and groundcovers.

Fill a wide, open area with a mass planting of these easy-peasy herbaceous perennials. Space them 12 inches apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

With their well-branched stems, a mass planting of these long blooming plants will become a fabulous focal point. Business owners, this selection will turn heads right to your front door!

Tips for Care

You’ll have very little care once these sun-loving plants are established in your yard. They are tolerant of “beginner gardeners” and are easy to grow, even in poor soils.

If you want the best performance, you will need to give them plenty of sunshine. They’ll need at least 6 hours of full sun a day.

Don’t plant this perennial in low-lying areas that collect water. They need well-drained soil.

And although they will be relatively drought tolerant, you’ll get more blooms with a regular schedule of medium water.

Feel free to cut the blooms and take them inside for flower arrangements. It’s a great way to deadhead the fading or spent blooms and encourage a new flush to follow right along behind it.

In early spring, if you’ve left your perennial plantings to stand over the winter, just snip the stalks back down to an inch above ground level.

Other than that, PowWow Wild Berry Coneflowers are almost maintenance free. Echinacea is a native species that does well in most of the country with very little care.
