The Q&A Archives: Purple Coneflower

Question: Are purple coneflowers easy to start from seed? Or, would I be better off buying the plants?

Answer: In my experience they are relatively easy to start from seed (if you are experienced with veggies or other flowers), and they even self seed in my garden if I do not deadhead them. However, they will probably take two years to bloom from seed so you are better off buying plants if you are an impatient gardener. It would be a matter of personal preference.
