Plant Features

Firebird Echinacea Plants gorgeous, 2-3-inch flowers with prominent dark orange cones that are surrounded by brilliantly-colored fiery-orange petals that are swept back dramatically, more than many other Coneflower varieties, making it look remarkably like a shuttlecock! Badminton anyone? The petals also vary from reddish-orange to a more orangey-orange, from center to tip, but keep that amazing fiery glow about them. Firebird will attract attention regardless of where you plant it! Attracts butterflies as well!

Companion Planting: Achillea, Coreopsis, Delphinium, Geranium, Grasses, Hemerocallis, Monarda, Phlox

Firebird Echinacea Plant Care Instructions: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 3-4 weeks. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Spent flowers should NOT be trimmed back if you want to attract songbirds as they enjoy the dried seed heads. Cut it back to the ground in early spring before the new growth starts. This is also a good time to apply fertilizer for the year.

Never fails…

I ordered this plus several other perennials at the beginning of June - right before the heat from Hades arrived. As always, the plants arrived in their little plastic "limos”, looking fresh and in great shape. They grew amazingly fast and the blooms are beautiful. This is my experience with all of the plants I’ve purchased - they just never fail. Can’t wait to order for next spring.

nice and healthy

Arrived a bit parched, gave it a good long drink, and put in shade till next morning. Looking forward to it to pop with color, not there yet. Healthy and in good shape otherwise

Firebird Echinacea plant

Firebird plants (2) arrived a little small in size and I called. She replaced the Firebird plants and were shipped out the next day. Plants arrived in excellent condition and are nice size plants. Would definitely order from GrowJoy again.

Echinacea Firebird

Firebird has its first bloom but so far the flower is Yellow-Orange and not Red. Since it just opened and this is the first bloom I can't say if it will turn Red or not. While I like it, I'm just not sure about the color being true. I'll know more in a few days after it ages.

Firebird Echinacea Plants

I am so glad I have found GrowJoy. All the plants I have ordered have been shipped in excellent condition and have thrived. Cone plants add so much color to my yard and bloom all summer. They also make great cut plant arrangements. Thanks to you guys I have become a true "cone head". I hope to eventually get every color!
