My son dug up some coneflowers from his home and brought them to me with blooms and roots. I planted them but am wondering if I should cut off the blooms now. We are in Wayne county Ohio I believe zone 6. Any suggestions will help.

Yes, cutting off the blooms will help the plant concentrate energy on establishing the roots. You could drop the flower heads in the soil nearby in case there are any mature seeds to drop.
