Echinacea pallida (Pale Purple Coneflower) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners who have experience with seeds that may require a chilling period. The easiest approach is to surface-sow (do not cover) the seeds in a pot in fall to mid-winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a natural chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

I have also read that it is possible these seeds could germinate if you start them in warm conditions, without a chilling period first. But if you try that and no seedlings appear in about a month, then give the pot an artificial chilling period of about a month.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Typically reaching 2 to 3 feet tall, pale purple coneflower (Echinacea pallida) produces clumps of mostly basal, long, slender leaves and upright stems, both of which are covered with short, white hairs. The large blooms have distinctly drooping, narrow, light pink petals (properly called ray florets), mainly in early summer (earlier than E. purpurea). They are followed by dark seedheads that add interest in fall and winter. This species is native to much of central North America and looks equally good in a border and in a meadow. Wherever it grows, it will provide food for birds as well as butterflies and other pollinators. Full sun; average to dry soil. Perennial; Zones 3 to 9.

Collected in early August 2022. At least 20 seeds. PA ecotype.
