Habitat: Echinacea does best in a sunny position with loamy, well-drained soil. Echinacea will tolerate some shade, is drought tolerant and deer resistant. It can be grown in cooler climates in pots or in a micro-climate that provides warmth and shelter. (eg:) Against the south wall of your house. Urban areas may be a full hardiness Zone warmer than rural areas just a few miles away. Urban areas tend to have less extreme low temperatures than the surrounding countryside. Buildings and paved surfaces absorb heat during the day, then radiate it back into the air at night, reducing the chances of frost and moderating low temperatures during winter. Buildings also offer protection from wind in many places.
