This delightful perennial boasts blooms reminiscent of a citrus carnival, with vibrant shades of lemon yellow and tangy orange, infusing your outdoor space with an exuberant charm. The Echinacea Sunseekers Citrus is a true standout in any landscape design. Whether you're creating a contemporary urban garden, a cottage-style paradise, or a wildflower wonderland, this versatile plant fits right in. Its bright and cheerful hues complement a wide range of garden themes and add a refreshing touch of colour to any setting. For a cottage garden, pair the Echinacea Sunseekers Citrus with lavender, daisies, and salvia, creating a picturesque and charming display reminiscent of a country meadow. Add a rustic touch with weathered pots and vintage garden ornaments to complete the enchanting look. For a modern landscape, plant the Echinacea Sunseekers Citrus alongside ornamental grasses and other bold-coloured flowers like red hot pokers or purple coneflowers. The striking contrast between the vibrant blooms and the clean lines of modern hardscaping elements creates a visually arresting scene. To attract pollinators, incorporate the Echinacea Sunseekers Citrus into a wildlife-friendly garden with bee balm, catmint, and butterfly bush. The citrus-hued blooms will draw butterflies and bees, transforming your garden into a buzzing and fluttering oasis. This low-maintenance perennial thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, making it a breeze to care for. Whether in borders, containers, or mixed planting beds, the Echinacea Sunseekers Citrus adds a dash of zest to any garden design.

Planting Conditions

Echinacea thrives in full sun to partial shade. Choose a planting location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. The soil should be well-drained and rich in organic matter. Echinacea is adaptable to various soil types, but it prefers slightly acidic to neutral pH levels. When planting, dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, place the plant at the same depth it was in the nursery container, and back-fill with soil. Water thoroughly after planting to settle the soil. With the right planting conditions, Echinacea will establish well and reward you with its beautiful and resilient blooms.

Watering & Feeding

Echinacea prefers well-drained soil and benefits from regular watering, especially during hot and dry periods. Water deeply, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Avoid over-watering, as Echinacea is drought-tolerant once established. When it comes to feeding, Echinacea generally doesn't require heavy fertilisation. Incorporating organic matter into the soil during planting provides sufficient nutrients. However, a light application of a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early Spring can support healthy growth and flowering. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for dosage and application. With proper watering and occasional feeding, your Echinacea will thrive and reward you with its vibrant and long-lasting blooms.

General Care

Echinacea is a hardy perennial that requires minimal care. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. Regular watering, especially during dry periods, helps to keep the soil evenly moist but not overly saturated. Deadheading spent flowers encourages continuous blooming and prevents self-seeding. In colder regions, a layer of mulch provides insulation during winter. Echinacea is generally resistant to pests and diseases but monitor for any signs of infestation or disease and take appropriate action if needed. Division every few years rejuvenates the plant and maintains its vigour. With these simple care practices, your Echinacea will flourish and enchant with its vibrant blooms.
