Prairie Coneflower Seeds

  • Start prairie coneflower seeds indoors 6-8 weeks prior to your last frost date. Can also direct-seed in fall.

    Cold stratification will improve germination. Place seeds in a moist paper towel inside a plastic bag or container. Keep in the fridge for 1-2 weeks before seeding. Seeds sown in the fall do not require stratification.

    Press seeds into soil and cover lightly. Keep moist until germination in ~7-35 days (may be longer with cooler temperatures). Germination can be erratic.

    Transplant after your last frost date into a sunny location, with plants 12-18 inches (30-45 cm) apart.

  • Ratibida columnifera
