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.
Dry open woods, prairies and barrens.
