The windflower is almost a perfect plant. To guarantee the perfection we should find a sunny or partially shady location in the garden. The best idea would be to choose a site near some taller bushes that would serve as a wind protection. Good garden soil, moist yet well drained, will definitely suit the moderate requirements of the plant. If we incorporate a good measure of well-rotted manure into the soil we can bank on healthy and vigorous growth and abundant flowering the following years. During hot summer spells we should forget to water the plants. Mulching with moist peat or half-rotted leaves can help retain the soil moisture. Young plants might need some winter protection but only during the first and second years after planting.
When the above mentioned (modest) requirements are met there is nothing else to do but wait for the first flowers. If the weather is too cold for the outdoor celebration do not hesitate to cut a few wiry stems topped with beautiful blooms and put them all in a vase. These windflowers are lovely for cutting not like the spring flowering windflowers. And this fact makes the fall more valuable season of all (I want to make it clear the text has not been sponsored by any autumn loving forces).
