A Colorful Coneflower Celebration in Your Garden!
Why Sombrero® Salsa Red Coneflowers?
Wherever you plant it, the Sombrero® Salsa Red Coneflower will provide as much of a party as its name suggests! Its big, bright red blooms offer unbeatable color. Adding to the charm, its brown, spiky center serves as the crown of the “sombrero,” while the slightly-drooping petals are the brim.
The Sombrero® Salsa Red Coneflower is a popular choice because of its sturdiness and multi-stemmed growth. At the same time, it doesn’t grow too large, too tall, or too quickly, making it the perfect option for small spaces or borders.
Plus, bees and butterflies go gaga for this variety, making it a lovely addition to any pollinator garden. Or consider cutting a few of these beauties to bring inside or give as a bouquet!
If you’re looking to fill a spot in your yard that gets a lot of sun, the Sombrero® Salsa Red Coneflower is the right choice! This sun-loving plant doesn’t mind periods of heat and drought but has also been bred to tolerate cold snaps.
This coneflower also blooms longer than similar plants. It's one of the earliest bloomers in any garden, flowering abundantly from early through late summer, even offering periodic flowering until the first frost!
It’s hard to beat the energy the Sombrero® Salsa Red Coneflower brings to your garden - order yours today!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find a spot with well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your coneflower in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots and add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, and use organic soil. Place your coneflower, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio.
2. Watering: Coneflowers prefer moist, well-drained soil, but can tolerate some drought. Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water.
If your flowers are in a container, add water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
