Plant Features

Hot! Hot! Hot! is the only description that fits Hot Papaya Echinacea Plants. Their blooms emerge a bright, almost fluorescent orange with a double, reddish-orange pompom on top, wow! Coneflower is adored by butterflies, bees and seed-eating wild birds. Once established, coneflowers are drought tolerant! They thrive in sunny spots with most any soil type, if it is well-drained. The deer and rabbits tend to avoid them. 

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

Huge perennials for mail order

I am extremely happy with the flowers I received. They are the largest from any online grower. They ship and arrive guickly in excellent condition which is amazing considering the temperature where I live have been in the high 90s to 100 degrees.

Hot Papaya Coneflower Echinacea

My Hot Papaya Coneflower arrived intact and thriving. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the plant and look forward to seeing the lovely orange-red blooms this summer! I have ordered several plants from GrowJoy and am very pleased with their shipping and especially the customer service - Cassandra is the best!!
