Echinacea 'Salsa Red'
Common Name: Coneflower Family: Asteraceae (The Aster Family)

Echinacea  'Salsa Red'
Zoom In Photo:

Notes:
I saw this plant in flower a year before its release and the flowers are likely the best true red yet offered from the hybrid coneflowers. The colour is not deep orange, not a hot orange-red but actually almost borders on a cool blue-red. Very floriferous, rich, deep red colour. The Sombrero Series offers well-branched, dwarf plants which produce lots of flowers. Echinacea in coastal BC should be planted in hot, dry, sunny spots with thin, average to poor soils for best overwintering.

North America
