Purple coneflower care after transplanting

Zone Gahanna,Ohio 43230 | Anonymous added on July 5, 2018 | Answered

I just transplanted some purple coneflowers. The greenery is wilting and the flower itself is a bit droopy. Should I cut them back to perk them up or let them try to assimulate to their new surroundings?

Did you transplant these perennials from the ground or a pot.

If they were moved from a pot into the ground, make sure they are watered daily and that the soil is well draining.
If the plants continue to wilt, you may need to trim back the plant material that does not recover.
