'Salsa Red' was the winner of our search for a true red coneflower. Part of the 'Sombrero' series this plant boast large fade-resistant blooms in a color I like to call mid-life crisis sports car red. These coneflowers are of medium height and work well in the middle to back of beds, under windows against fences and under trees. The blooms are profuse and the color of red is truly fantastic.

You can't go wrong with echinacea. We carry a multitude of cultivars and colors for just that reason. They are easy to grow and reward the lazy gardener with months of full beautiful blooms that just keep coming. Pollinators are big fans of the native and nativar varieties flocking to the flowers through the summer and well into the fall. Echinacea comes in many varieties both short and tall. They can be used in a wide variety of garden applications including border gardens, container plantings and naturalization into a larger area. They make great cut flowers. The seeds feed finches and other birds through the cold months, while also maintaining a structural interest through the winter months. I could go on... let's just leave it at we love them and you should too!

Happy Customer

The plants were well packaged and very healthy! They have blooms on them so ready to see how they look once bloomed.

Sombrero salsa red coneflower

I received my coneflower the other week and planted it the same day. The packaging it was in was perfect for the flower; it arrived without any damage plus it had not dried out at all. After two weeks in the ground it has already grown and will really show up well in my flower garden. Very pleased!

Beautiful healthy plant!

I tried to grow these from seeds bought from another company and had no success. This plant arrived healthy and took off quickly when I put it in the ground. It has nearly doubled in size already (1 month) and the blooms are a gorgeous deep shade of red. I had not ordered live plants before. Very impressed.
