Description / Echinacea Sombrero® Salsa Red

Bright red blooms around a big central cone seem to signal to every butterfly, bee, and songbird in the neighborhood to stop by for a visit. This echinacea is a bold addition to any sunny location in the landscape, from the perennial border to flowerpots on the deck.

Part of the Sombrero® series of compact, cold-hardy, floriferous echinacea, Salsa Red has all the merits of its family. If you live in a cold-winter climate, you will find that it stands up to severe storms and falling temperatures better than most others. The flowers are numerous and keep coming over a longer season. And this plant is no more than 2 feet high.

Salsa Red is subtly fragrant and lovely in the vase. The blooms last a good long time but be sure to cut or deadhead them as they pass, because that will stimulate the formation of new buds. This goes on for months.

Enjoy finding the perfect spot for this ultra-hardy, low-maintenance selection of our American native wildflower.

Review by John Delker
Bought 6 mid Sept, 2017, 4 looked very good and 2 were a little weak. All flowered shortly after planting and did well into cold weather.
