Enjoy the charm of cottage-garden coneflowers with Echinacea Sombrero Red. It has the charm of coneflowers yet the added drama of hot red petals that are accentuated when planted en masse. We recommend you plant up around nine young plants to every square metre (square yard) for a dramatic show in summer.

Happy in patio or balcony containers Red Sombrero brings your outdoor space to life even if you don’t have a lawn and surrounding beds. Simply plant up to three young plants to one 30cm (12in) diameter container and watch your Sombrero Red return every summer bigger and better.

Attractive to bees and butterflies coneflower Echinacea Sombrero Red brings yours garden alive and turns it into an active ecosystem of plants and wildlife.

Useful tips:

Partner with nearby perennials in hot colours of oranges and yellows. Try marmalade heleniums, yellow rudbeckias and even summer bulbs like red dahlias nearby to maximise the hot effect and make you feel like you’re visiting the Mexican beach of Acapulco.

Consider cutting the stems of echinacea to add to vases for your late-summer windowsills indoors- they partner well in vases with the flower-power of roses.
