Ornamental corkscrew plant care
The corkscrew plant (Echinacea purpurea), known in Canada and in the US as purple coneflower, is a hardy perennial flowering plant in the daisy family.
Conservation status in the UK
The distribution of this plant is very localised. While it has a very large natural distribution over large areas of the Midwest United States it is also the subject of active conservation management in both Colorado and North Carolina. The conservation status in the UK was changed from endangered to vulnerable on 2 September 2012. However, this status is subject to change in the future.
The corkscrew plant is also now rare in Great Britain. This means that very few wild populations exist in Scotland, the Lake District, the Lake District and counties of Yorkshire, the North Pennines and the Yorkshire Wolds. However, where the corkscrew plant grows it is commonly used as a garden plant. It can also be grown outside on a sunny rockery and has a number of cultivars and colour forms available.
The United States
Echinacea purpurea grows throughout the United States and Canada in the prairie states, in the western regions and into the northeast. It grows best in sandy and sandy loam soils, and tends to grow best in sunny areas of the ground. Where the plant grows it does best when there is plenty of moisture. The flower heads may develop all through the summer and into the autumn. The corkscrew plant has a very long tap root which grows down into the soil, making it difficult to dig up and transplant.
Echinacea purpurea grows well in dry climates and areas where the soil does not contain enough nutrients. It may even grow in poor, acid or calcareous soils.Its flowers may be left to develop for up to four weeks. The seed does not produce flowers when in fruit, and so to produce new plants you need to collect the seeds from the flower heads. It needs to be watered regularly to keep the root system healthy. The plant must be cut back after flowering to prevent weak growth the following spring.
The American Herb Association recommends three types of cultivation. Firstly, the plant can be grown in either a container or in the garden. It grows well in both container and soil and needs to be potted into compost every few months. If the plant is growing in the soil it needs regular irrigation to prevent dryness. This water can be applied regularly. Secondly, it is highly resistant to cold and can be moved into a cooler environment and transplanted if it becomes too warm. However, the plant does not like temperatures below 30 ,°F, and above 60 ,°F the plant may suffer due to its roots being too much of a hard-pan. Lastly, it is also resistant to rabbits, deer and ants, and as such is a great addition to a compost bin.
The plant, as with many, is susceptible to certain pests. As with many annual plants, the flowers are very susceptible to aphids. The American Herb Association recommends spraying on the morning after a rain, or applying a weak soap solution onto the flowers.
