Kismet® Red Echinacea (Kismet Red
Coneflower) produces dense, compact plants with large, brilliant red flowers with orange cones that start blooming early and do not stop until frost. It is a standout in the garden or in containers. Coneflowers grow well in moist to dry, well-drained soils in full to part sun locations! Bees and butterflies are attracted to its pollen while songbirds enjoy the seed heads once they dry out. Deer tend to avoid the plants.

Kismet Red Echinacea Plant Care Instructions: 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 late winter or early spring before the new growth starts. Spring is a good time to apply fertilizer for the year.
