Sunny, bright-yellow flowers with golden cones ringed in white, bloom late spring through late summer. Echinacea Summer Solstice is part of the popular Sombrero® Series. The bloom holds its color even in hot locations. Growing to 18–20" high and 20-24" wide, this flowering gem can be used in front of the garden border, along walkways, in patio containers, window boxes, or mixed in with the perennial garden. Full sun to part sun. Zones 4-9.
Echinacea, also known as coneflowers, is an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance garden plant that requires moderate water but can be drought-tolerant once established. The colorful flowers that are produced later in spring through fall are not just beautiful but also an important nectar source for many varieties of birds, butterflies, and bees.
