Plant Features

Summersong™ Firefinch™ Echinacea (Summersong Firefinch Coneflower) is a new, compact variety with gorgeous shades of red to reddish orange to pinkish red. Blooms all season and is perfect for smaller garden spaces and containers and tolerates heat like a champ! 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 tends to avoid the plants. (An improved version of LAKOTA™ Fire)

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

Summersong Firefinch 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.

beautiful plant

My plant came securely packaged, as they always do from Growjoy. This coneflower had 2 blooms on it just opening...they are now fully open and beautiful. More buds developing.

Lakota Fire

I was very happy with the plant when it came, very healthy. Even had a few unopened blooms! I plan on ordering more plants that are on pre-order.
