Echinaceas have grown in popularity in recent years, thanks to the trend for prarie-style planting. They are easy to grow as they will tolerate most decent soils and their sturdy nature means that staking is unnecessary. Their long-lived flowers are excellent for cutting and are attractive to bees. 'Robert Bloom' produces beautiful upward-facing, flat, dusky red-purple flowers with orange-brown centres from July to September.

I'm a novice gardener but have planted echinacea
do you dead head them ?
Does anyone know why these flowers last so long? They seem to last for weeks in my garden!
I planted echinacea purprea seeds this year, they all came up and I have had quite large plants BUT NONE of them flowered.
Any ideas why?
