Echinaceas have grown in popularity in recent years, thanks to the new trend for prairie-style planting. They're easy to grow as they tolerate most soils, and their sturdy nature means that staking is unnecessary.
Echinacea 'Irresistable' bears beautiful upward-facing, flat, double apricot-pink flowers from June to September. Their long-lived flowers are excellent for cutting and are attractive to bees. Its compact habit makes it suitable for growing in pots and containers, or planted in drifts through the centre of the border.

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?
