Photo of the Day - 'Salsa Red' Coneflower

Salsa red coneflower by Jan Johnsen

I planted 'Salsa red' coneflower (Echinacea Sombrero™ Salsa Red) for the first time this year. It is in a west facing garden border. The hot summer sun bleaches out all pastel colors there but this vibrant red perennial was eye popping! 

Combine it with blue Angelonia and Sedum ' Angelina' for a rear colorful display in summer.
