Yellow Coneflower Care: What Is It?
The name “yellow coneflower” comes from the fact that they are a yellowish color with white flowers. They have a thin stem and are very easy to grow. They require little care but can become invasive if not tended properly. You will need to provide them with lots of light and water, which means you’ll want to keep your soil moist all year round!
How To Grow Yellow Coneflower Plants In A Pot?
You can start growing yellow coneflower plants in a pot right away. However, it’s best to wait until spring when their growth rate slows down. When they’re ready, you can transplant them into a larger container or use a hanging basket system like this one.
Hanging Baskets For Growing Coneflowers
These baskets are made from recycled plastic bottles. They come in various sizes and are hung over a raised bed so that sunlight hits them directly. There are several different designs available, including some that resemble flowerpots. Some even include a small terrarium inside the basket to house your new echinacea friends!
Do Coneflowers Spread?
Yes, they do spread. The problem with that is that they also tend to “invade” other peoples’ yards. If you decide to keep them in a pot, make sure it’s not too large or it WILL try to grow outside the pot! You can take the top part of the plant and root it in water to create new plants if you want to keep it contained.
