Echinacea PowWow® Wild Berry produces multiple blooms that last no matter what kind of soil it grows in: acidic, clay, loamy, sandy, and even dry soil. In fact, wild berry coneflowers have a strong drought tolerance. The bright flower heads of this coneflower species will bring butterflies and other pollinators to the garden, whether it's planted in woodland gardens, borders, or planters. In the fall, be sure to leave the seed heads of the pow wow coneflower alone, as they'll bring birds flocking for a much-needed feast. With so much to love about this perennial, it's no wonder that the PowWow Wild Berry Coneflower won the All-America Selection Award in 2010. Echinacea purpurea 'PASA702917'
This hot pink coneflower, Echinacea Wild Berry, is a perennial plant. Coneflowers can be propagated from seeds, but they also have root clumps that go dormant in fall before returning in the spring. This plant will flower in the first year, bringing colorful blooms from mid-summer to early fall, and will come back with flowers year after year.
Coneflowers are American natives, and so are known for their low maintenance growth habits and non-finicky nature. The PowWow Wild Berry Coneflower is no different in this regard. It can be easily grown in any soil, even rough or sandy soil, as long as it receives lots of sun. This echinacea requires adequate watering in its first year, but, once established, it will need very little water, as it prefers medium to dry soil.
This plant thrives in hot, sunny conditions, and can even survive in Zone 9, one of the United States' warmest climates. If you're wondering what your zone is, use our Zone Finder tool to find out. Coneflowers are genuine sun plants, so make sure your coneflowers receive at least six to eight hours of light each day.
PowWow Coneflowers typically grow to 24 - 36 inches tall, making them excellent for use as tall prairie plants or in mass plantings. The typical spread of this plant varies from 12 - 18 inches in width, and tends to spread a bit more each year.
Wild Berry coneflowers produce seeds, but don't tend to actually propagate by seed in the garden. However, the central root mass of any PowWow coneflower will keep growing in size each year, so it is advisable to divide the plant regularly. Divide your coneflowers every three to four years to keep the plants healthy-and to create more coneflowers for planting in other locations or for sharing.
The Wild Berry coneflower is considered deer resistant, while still attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators. This plant's prickly stems provide great protection against grazing animals, yet it still works wonders as a pollinator habitat plant.
