I would like to know about planting the echinacea bulbs. I heard that you should really plant the bulbs in late fall. Since I am just now planting the bulbs will they root and produce flowers this year?
Also will echinacea plant adapt with planting gladiolas in the same garden area?
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Echinacea grows best in full sunshine, in well draining soils; the same cultural requirements as for glads. So, yes, they will grow well together in the same garden bed. Echinacea is a perennial with a root mass, not a bulb. But, it's still an attractive plant whether you plant roots or seeds. Enjoy!
