Sow: Sow seeds directly outdoors in spring or fall. Seeds require a cold, moist period - called stratification - in order to germinate. Most plants will bloom during the second year
Sun: Full sun / partial sun. At least 4 hours of direct sunlight a day

Watering: Drought-tolerant. Echinacea is a low-water plant; however, you’ll need to water young plants to help them establish new roots. That is usually a sequence of every day or every other day right after planting, moving to a couple of times per week, to once per week, to every other week, to watering only when your area is experiencing extreme drought. The second year after planting and beyond you should not have to water Echinacea at all unless you’ve gone eight weeks or more without rain.
