How to Care for Echinacea Lakota Fire
After purchasing an Echinacea Lakota Fire Plant, be sure to read our recommended care instructions to maintain a healthy and happy plant!
What is the best light for Echinacea Lakota Fire?
Echinacea Lakota Fire thrives in the hard-to-plant full sun areas of your garden. While it can tolerate a number of light conditions, plant in full sun for optimal blooms.
What soil should I plant my Lakota Fire Coneflower?
One of the reasons Echinacea Lakota Fire is so beloved is that it is tolerant of a very wide range of soils. Ideally it should be planted in rich, well-draining soil. When planting, you may want to add some organic material such as compost or topsoil to the existing soil for added nutrients.
How often should I water my Echinacea Lakota Fire?
Water weekly after planting but once the roots of your Lakota Fire Dwarf Coneflower have established, the plant will be drought tolerant and can live off of low amounts of water. If you live in an especially sunny or warm area be sure to adjust accordingly.
Do I need to prune my Lakota Fire Coneflower Plant?
As always, you can remove spent flowers (deadheading) or dead and dying stems, but Echinacea Lakota Fire is able to thrive if left unpruned. However, if you would like, pruning in the early spring can improve the number and length of the blooms.
