Echinacea 'Salsa Red'
Echinacea Sombrero® Salsa Red displays single rows of drooping, deep orange-red ray petals around a sombrero-shaped, orange-brown cone. The lightly fragrant flowers attract butterflies! Provides long lasting color in the garden. Coneflower is easy to grow in any well-drained soil. It requires little water once established. Plant in mixed borders, cutting gardens and mass plantings. Deadhead regularly, but leave last flower heads for birds.
Masses of Salsa red coneflower make a stunning display in this Vancouver, Washington garden designed by Darcy Daniels of Bloomtown Gardens.
