Why You Should Consider Planting Coneflowers Next To Your Petunias
With their vibrant flowers, petunias are a go-to choice for any garden. However, they can truly flourish alongside coneflowers, which attract pollinators and deter deer.
Luckily, both plants love slightly acidic to neutral, well-drained soil and full sunlight. Since coneflowers aren’t very competitive, you can space the two plants out by a foot.
Keep in mind that while petunias need fertilizer, it can be detrimental to coneflowers due to weed growth. Research the nutrition requirements of your species and weed frequently.
Coneflowers can further contribute to your garden with their beautiful foliage, drought tolerance, low maintenance, and the ability to create gorgeous decorations.
