Types of Drought-Tolerant Echinacea Perennials
Many kinds of echinacea perennials are available, including deer-resistant varieties. One type is the drought-tolerant echinacea purpurea perennial, which features a bronze-colored cone and purple-colored petals for a striking contrast.
While echinacea perennials varieties are all different, they share many similarities. All are adored by butterflies, hummingbirds and bees and can flourish in dry and clay-like soil. Many also tolerate shallow to rocky soil that’s often less than ideal for other perennials.
Why Plant Drought-Tolerant Echinacea Perennials?
What our nursery team loves about drought-tolerant echinacea perennials is that they’re a beautiful and functional addition to landscapes. Whether you’re creating a meadow, wildflower or native plant garden, these perennials are an excellent choice — they also pair well with black-eyed Susans.
From drought to deer, their numerous tolerances are appreciated, too. The fact that they can flourish with minimal care is also a benefit, especially if you’re a busy gardener. Maintenance for drought-tolerant echinacea perennials focuses on dividing clumps and deadheading them.
Tips for Choosing the Right Variety of Drought-Tolerant Echinacea Perennials
Before buying your drought-tolerant echinacea perennials, our nursery experts suggest asking the following:
- Which growing zones are best for this variety?
- What sunlight or shade requirements does this plant have?
- What type of soil does this perennial prefer?
- How much space does this kind of perennial need?
By comparing your garden’s features with your favorite varieties, you can choose the best ones for your home.
How to Care for Drought-Tolerant Echinacea Perennials
After your drought-tolerant echinacea perennials arrive, care for them by finding the perfect spot: An area with full sunlight and well-drained soil is ideal. If your soil’s quality is poor, your perennials should still flourish, as they’re hardy.
To give your drought-tolerant echinacea perennials the best beginning, we recommend using a starter fertilizer — Bio-tone is one our nursery experts trust. After planting your new perennials, be sure to provide them with a deep watering. A green rule of thumb is to count to five seconds for every gallon in your plant’s container.
Every three to four years, divide your clumps of drought-tolerant echinacea perennials. If your family, friends or neighbors are interested in expanding their gardens, these perennials make beautiful, thoughtful gifts.
