    Generally you do not need to stake echinaceas as they are very capable of holding their stems up right. I only have a few and wish I had more but never had to support them.

    I've never staked my common purple or my white variety.  They get exposed to plenty of wind and gusted around.  You might need to stake your first year, if you buy them as adult plants.. but if you get them small in the spring you should be fine.

    Most modern varieties should be really sturdy and won't need support.
