Plant Features

Cheyenne Spirit Coneflower, known botanically as Echinacea 'Cheyenne Spirit', is a vibrant and hardy cultivar of the Echinacea genus, which is part of the Asteraceae family. This perennial plant, celebrated for its drought resistance and captivating range of colors, has garnered appreciation for its ability to bring a lively splash to any garden setting.

Originating from the Great Plains of North America, Cheyenne Spirit Echinacea showcases a robust constitution that is a testament to its prairie heritage. It stands out with its colorful and daisy-like flowers, which bloom in an array of fiery shades including red, orange, purple, scarlet, cream, yellow, and sometimes white. Each flower presents a prominent, cone-shaped central disc, which is surrounded by petals that gently droop downwards as they mature.

This coneflower reaches an average height of 24 to 30 inches and spreads to about 24 inches, forming clumps that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional, attracting pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and even hummingbirds. The blooms, appear from mid-summer to early autumn.

Cheyenne Spirit is noted for its adaptability and can thrive in a range of soil types, though it prefers well-draining soil with a neutral to slightly acidic pH. Once established, this Echinacea cultivar is exceptionally tolerant of dry spells, though it benefits from occasional watering during prolonged droughts.

This plant's ease of care makes it a favored choice among gardeners. It requires full sun exposure to reach its full potential, which means at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Partial shade is tolerable, but flowering may be reduced. Cheyenne Spirit does not typically suffer from severe pest or disease issues, making it a robust addition to any garden.

When landscaping with Cheyenne Spirit Coneflower, consider its ability to stand tall as a mid-border plant or to add height and color to the back of flower beds. Its upright habit and bright flowers make it an excellent companion for ornamental grasses and other sun-loving perennials. 

In terms of propagation, Cheyenne Spirit Echinacea will maintain its vibrant color range reliably through division. Dividing the plants every few years in the spring or fall can help promote vigorous growth and prevent overcrowding.

Maintenance for Cheyenne Spirit is minimal. While deadheading spent flowers throughout the growing season encourages additional blooming, consider leaving the dried seed heads in place over winter. This provides a valuable food source for seed-eating birds when other resources are scarce. As the winter chill begins to thaw and early spring approaches, you can then cut back the stems to the ground. This not only tidies up your garden but also prepares your plants for a fresh burst of growth.

Several months ago I placed my first order with GrowJoy. I was impressed with delivery, quality of plant and the excellent protective packaging. I subsequently placed several more small orders for perennial plants this season. This is the only mail order plant supply company I will deal with.

Cheyenne Spirit Mix Echinacea

Just received my shipment of Echinacea a little less than a week ago. The plants were perfectly packed: though the box had been a bit crushed by USPS, everything inside was perfectly intact! I immediately transplanted them into 10 pots and within an hour they were perking up (they had been in transit for 5 days, after all). Every single plant not only survived but are now thriving in the garden!

Chenenne Spirit Echinacea

WOW! This plant is everything that is advertised. Mine have just started blooming and so far I have a red and a gold. The colors are so rich you'd think the plant wasn't real. I am really impressed and excited about Cheyenne Spirit and it certainly deserved the awards it received. A truly spectacular Echinacea.

I got my plants Tangerine Dreams and Cheyenne Spirit on time. They are babies yet but they were healthy and look like they will love their new home.
