Echinacea PowWow® Wild Berry Description
Pow Wow Wild Berry coneflower produces the most blooms ever on a compact echinacea, and will rebloom effortlessly without the need to deadhead!

Charming and compact at only 24" tall with sturdy basal branching, which means lots of blooms that hold up nicely even under adverse weather conditions.
No staking required on this heavy-blooming coneflower! Perfect companion to late-blooming sedums, colorful ornamental grasses, & long-blooming Knock Out roses!

Soil : Average to sandy soil. They do best in soil that is high in organic matter, and well drained.
Light : Full sun -- Plant them in a spot that gets at least 5 hours of full sun a day. They will tolerate partial shade, but plants may flop or strain to reach the sun.
Water : Average -- Water regularly the first season to encourage good root growth. Coneflowers are often listed as drought tolerant, and though they do handle the heat of summer very well once established, they will do much better with regular watering.
Spacing : 16 - 24 inches
Fertilizing : Over fertilizing will cause spindly growth, so keep echinacea on a lean diet; fertilizing once in the spring with an organic fertilizer.
Winterizing : Avoid damp spots, and heavy mulching over crowns in winter. Too much moisture can cause fungus or rot. Leave the foliage standing for winter, (birds enjoy the seed heads), and trim back or remove spent foliage in early spring before new growth emerges.
Maintenance & pruning : Once planted, they are best left alone, as they do not transplant well. They are prolific bloomers, and snipping off the spent blooms will keep them blooming. Luckily, each flower remains in bloom for several weeks. First season after transplant, just enjoy your newly planted echinacea flowers all summer, and then clip off all flowers at the end of August. If the plant starts to form new buds in September, clip these off before they open. Leave the plant in place all fall; don't cut it down in your fall cleanup. Given this treatment, the first season your plants will build a strong root system that will promote hardy, robust growth for years to come. After the first year, you can deadhead throughout the growing season, allowing the plant to flower in the fall.
