How To Plant Hot Papaya Coneflower
The Hot Papaya Coneflower is a low maintenance stunner! It grows well in average soil, from dry to medium moisture, as long is it drains well. As it settles in, it will become drought, heat and humidity tolerant! Be sure to find it a home in full sun for the best showing, but it can handle part shade as well. Coneflowers love heat, so they're slow to emerge in spring, but be patient - they'll arrive soon enough!
How To Water
Water your new Coneflower as soon as it arrives! While drought tolerant when established, your perennial will need some assistance in the watering department the first year.
How To Fertilize
When it comes to fertilizing your Hot Papaya Coneflower, the best time to do so is in early spring as your Coneflowers are breaking dormancy. They only need to be fertilized once a year but be sure to use an all natural fertilizer like the Bower & Branch Elements Starter Plant Food - chemical fertilizers will burn your plants if over applied!
How To Prune
Deadheading spent flowers will keep plants looking their freshest, but the seedheads do provide winter interest, so leave them alone to enjoy four-season beauty. Cut old stems down before new growth appears in spring.
