Description

'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.

Coneflower, also known as echinacea, is a wonderful perennial native to the U.S. midwest and prairies. It does best in a light loamy soil, but will do well in any well-drained soil. Full sunlight and heat are best for full flowering, while they can tolerate some light shade, we recommend at least 6 hours of full sun each and every day. Once established they are very drought resistant making them a great plant for those looking for a low water/ low maintenance garden. As a perennial flower, if cared for correctly echinacea will return with new growth each year.

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.
