More commonly known as Coneflowers, Echinacea are flowering herbaceous perennials in the daisy family. ‘Sombrero Sangrita’ is a compact variety with orange flowers that mature to rich warm red with age. The flowers are long-lived, excellent for cutting and extremely attractive to pollinators. We recommend planting Echinacea in drifts towards the middle of a border, or among Grasses & Rudbeckia in a prairie-style planting scheme.

provided you give them a sunny spot and a well-drained soil, these perennials don't like wet feet in the winter. The best flower colour occurs in a sunny position. During the first year keep the soil moist, but once established they are fairly drought tolerant. If you see leaves wilting or drooping, dry or cracked soil, or dry leaves that turn yellow, you should water your plant right away. If you see any of the characteristics just mentioned, be sure to give your plant a good watering, and then pay close attention to it for the next few weeks to be sure it is getting the moisture that it needs. In general, keep Echinacea on a lean diet, just fertilising once in the spring with an organic fertiliser. Remove faded flowers to prolong flowering. Cut down to soil level after they stop blooming or after a frost. Alternatively, you can leave the seed heads as they are over the winter. This can help promote self-seeding[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="30"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner column_margin="default" column_direction="default" column_direction_tablet="default" column_direction_phone="default" text_align="left" row_position="default" row_position_tablet="inherit" row_position_phone="inherit" overflow="visible" pointer_events="all"][vc_column_inner column_padding="no-extra-padding" column_padding_tablet="inherit" column_padding_phone="inherit" column_padding_position="all" column_element_direction_desktop="horizontal" column_element_alignment="center" column_element_spacing="20px" desktop_text_alignment="left" tablet_text_alignment="default" phone_text_alignment="default" background_color_opacity="1" background_hover_color_opacity="1" column_backdrop_filter="none" column_shadow="none" column_border_radius="none" column_link_target="_self" overflow="visible" gradient_direction="left_to_right" overlay_strength="0.3" width="1/1" tablet_width_inherit="default" animation_type="default" bg_image_animation="none" border_type="simple" column_border_width="none" column_border_style="solid" column_padding_type="default" gradient_type="default"][nectar_icon icon_family="iconsmind" icon_style="shadow-bg" icon_color_type="color_scheme" icon_color="Accent-Color" icon_padding="5px" pointer_events="all" icon_size="50" icon_iconsmind="iconsmind-Flowerpot"][vc_custom_heading text="Planting Conditions" font_container="tag:h2|font_size:24|text_align:left|color:%23ffffff" use_theme_fonts="yes"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner column_margin="default" column_direction="default" column_direction_tablet="default" column_direction_phone="default" bottom_padding="5%" text_align="left" row_position="default" row_position_tablet="inherit" row_position_phone="inherit" overflow="visible" pointer_events="all"][vc_column_inner column_padding="no-extra-padding" column_padding_tablet="inherit" column_padding_phone="inherit" column_padding_position="all" column_element_direction_desktop="default" column_element_spacing="default" desktop_text_alignment="default" tablet_text_alignment="default" phone_text_alignment="default" background_color_opacity="1" background_hover_color_opacity="1" column_backdrop_filter="none" font_color="#ffffff" column_shadow="none" column_border_radius="none" column_link_target="_self" overflow="visible" gradient_direction="left_to_right" overlay_strength="0.3" width="1/1" tablet_width_inherit="default" animation_type="default" bg_image_animation="none" border_type="simple" column_border_width="none" column_border_style="solid" column_padding_type="default" gradient_type="default"][vc_column_text]Performs best in a sunny or partially shaded position in any moist but well-drained soil.

Geums dislike soils that are prone to waterlogging, if the soil feels moist but not wet, it does not need watering. If the soil feels soggy or wet, it needs some time to try out. If the soil feels dry, then it’s time to water. If planted in a container it will be saturated when moisture begins to seep from the drainage holes, while ground watering should stop when the ground begins absorbing slower than your watering. Keep watering to a minimum in winter. Geums are not particularly hungry plants, so giving the compost a mulch annually with garden compost in the spring should be sufficient.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="30"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner column_margin="default" column_direction="default" column_direction_tablet="default" column_direction_phone="default" text_align="left" row_position="default" row_position_tablet="inherit" row_position_phone="inherit" overflow="visible" pointer_events="all"][vc_column_inner column_padding="no-extra-padding" column_padding_tablet="inherit" column_padding_phone="inherit" column_padding_position="all" column_element_direction_desktop="horizontal" column_element_alignment="center" column_element_spacing="20px" desktop_text_alignment="left" tablet_text_alignment="default" phone_text_alignment="default" background_color_opacity="1" background_hover_color_opacity="1" column_backdrop_filter="none" column_shadow="none" column_border_radius="none" column_link_target="_self" overflow="visible" gradient_direction="left_to_right" overlay_strength="0.3" width="1/1" tablet_width_inherit="default" animation_type="default" bg_image_animation="none" border_type="simple" column_border_width="none" column_border_style="solid" column_padding_type="default" gradient_type="default"][nectar_icon icon_family="fontawesome" icon_style="shadow-bg" icon_color_type="color_scheme" icon_color="Accent-Color" icon_padding="5px" pointer_events="all" icon_size="50" icon_fontawesome="fa fa-pagelines"][vc_custom_heading text="General Care" font_container="tag:h2|font_size:24|text_align:left|color:%23ffffff" use_theme_fonts="yes"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner column_margin="default" column_direction="default" column_direction_tablet="default" column_direction_phone="default" bottom_padding="3%" text_align="left" row_position="default" row_position_tablet="inherit" row_position_phone="inherit" overflow="visible" pointer_events="all"][vc_column_inner column_padding="no-extra-padding" column_padding_tablet="inherit" column_padding_phone="inherit" column_padding_position="all" column_element_direction_desktop="default" column_element_spacing="default" desktop_text_alignment="default" tablet_text_alignment="default" phone_text_alignment="default" background_color_opacity="1" background_hover_color_opacity="1" column_backdrop_filter="none" font_color="#ffffff" column_shadow="none" column_border_radius="none" column_link_target="_self" overflow="visible" gradient_direction="left_to_right" overlay_strength="0.3" width="1/1" tablet_width_inherit="default" animation_type="default" bg_image_animation="none" border_type="simple" column_border_width="none" column_border_style="solid" column_padding_type="default" gradient_type="default"][vc_column_text]Throughout the flowering season cut back old stems to the base of the plant to encourage more flowers.
