Plant Features

Tomato Soup Echinacea Plants produce large, vibrant, tomato-red petals that surround a bronze central cone. The 6-inch wide flowers bloom throughout mid-to-late-summer and are great for adding a shot of color to a fresh flower arrangement. 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 full sun 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

Tomato Soup 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.

Reliable Company

I was looking for a red Echinacea plant and I stumbled on this site. My plant arrived about a week later. It was pretty warm when it arrived, the plant was in excellent condition. I planted it that night and it is growing great! I will definitely order from this company again!!!
