How to deadhead coneflowers – expert advice for a longer lasting floral display

Q: I planted several new coneflowers (echinacea) in my garden this year as part of a drought-tolerant prairie-garden program. They have started to bloom and are beautiful, but I wonder what to do when the flowers fade. Should I deadhead them, and if so, what’s the best approach?

A: Dead plants are beneficial in more ways than one, and echinacea is no exception. Removing dead flowers will encourage plants to make more blooms, rather than channeling their energy into seed production. This means you can continue to enjoy their colorful display for longer, as well as visit bees and butterflies.
