Garden Photo of the Day - Echinacea 'Salsa Red'
|Echinacea x purpurea Sombrero 'Salsa Red'|
A new series of Coneflower bred for sturdy and compact plants featuring very large, single flowers with bright red overlapping petals surrounding a large brown cone.
Ideal for sunny borders. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for cutting. Coneflowers begin blooming midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. Keeping some dried flower heads on the plants in fall will provide food for wintering song birds.
Dried seed heads also add interest to the winter garden.
