Homeowner Growing Tips: Coneflowers like it sunny and hot. They can tolerate light shade, but they will produce fewer flowers and the plants will be weakened. They will grow in any well-drained soil, though light and loamy soils are best. They are drought tolerant once established, and if properly cared for they will form an attractive colony that will live for years to come.
