Look forward to the big impact of cottage-garden coneflowers Echinacea Sombrero Red. It has the charm of other coneflowers but with the drama of hot red petals that are emphasised when planted in big groups. We suggest you plant up around nine young plants to every square metre (square yard) for a big, impressive show in summer.
Happy in patio or balcony containers Red Sombrero brings your outdoor space to life and doesn’t necessitate a garden with flower beds. Simply plant up to three young plants to one 30cm (12in) diameter container and see coneflower Sombrero Red come back every summer, with more and more flowers.
Attractive to bees and butterflies coneflower Echinacea Sombrero Red turns your outdoor space into an area of activity between flowers, plants and insects.
Partner with nearby perennials in hot colours of oranges and yellows. Pair with hot heleniums, yellow rudbeckias and even summer bulbs like red dahlias nearby to create plants and flowers with heat and impact.
Cut some of the stems of echinacea to add to vases for your late-summer windowsills indoors- they partner well in vases with cut roses.
