Echinacea 'Summer Salsa'

- Soil: most soils, except very dry or boggy
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: July to September
- Hardiness: fully hardy
A new double-flowered cultivar producing magnificent yellow-flushed orange flowerheads for a long period from midsummer. It looks very effective when planted in bold drifts through a border with a hot colour theme and will make a wonderful addition to the vase when cut.
- 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.
