Covered with beautiful and giant rosy red flowers this echinacea is a charmer. It's a traditional Echinacea with an updated style that gives it stronger stems. They make a fantastic cut flower but before you cut them enjoy the abundance of butterflies and bees.

Planting and Growing Echinacea
Make sure your Echinacea “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area that is mostly sunny. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot. Clip spent blooms for a continuous flowering!
