Plant Features

Arriving in a vivid display of intense, orange-red, Sombrero® Salsa Red Echinacea will add a bright spark to any outdoor space! A favorite among Echinacea lovers, the large pom-poms are perfectly fringed with a brilliant red skirt of petals. These continuous bloomers will provide color all season and are excellent as a cut flower, so try some indoors! Echinacea is a clump-forming perennial that offers large showy blooms that attract butterflies and bees for its nectar and wild birds for the seeds once the flower-head dries out. Once they are 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. 

Echinacea Companion Plants: Achillea, Coreopsis, Delphinium, Geranium, Grasses, Hemerocallis, Monarda, Phlox

Now Cheesier 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.
