Echinacea 'Hot Papaya' (PBR)
- Position: full sun
- Soil: most soils, except very dry or boggy
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to September
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Recently introduced, this new coneflower produces its double, orange-red flowerheads on well branching stems throughout summer. The flowerheads hold their colour well as they mature and will add vibrancy to a ‘hot’ themed border.
- Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. In autumn cut back all dead flower stems to the ground. Coneflowers benefit from a spring or autumn mulch with well-rotted compost.
