cutting flower stems off now is a bit too late to make a difference for this season. it is important to remove flower stems as they go over, during the growing season to keep echinaceas flowering.
Culturally, although echinaceas enjoy it drier and warmer than say rudbeckias,,they still benefit from a good drink now and then in summer. Not now though.
Down here flowers are still coming because the growing season is a long one....no sign of them dying down just yet.
you can move them now aym..soil is warm and moist and you can better judge how they will look next year too.
