Why plant Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflower?

¡Ay caramba! Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflower will bring pizzazz to your borders all summer long. This floriferous new Spirit will cheer you with an abundant display of flashy orange blossoms. Plant it alongside Salsa Red Coneflower and Lemon Yellow Coneflower (both also from the Sombrero® collection) and you’ll have yourself a real fiesta! Or, try it with the soothing blooms of Blue Fortune Anise Hyssop or lavender-blue Russian Sage. Resembling badminton shuttlecocks, Adobe Orange’s flowers also contribute playful shapes to the garden that will give guests and passersby a smile. Plant this sassy Coneflower in your entryway garden or foundation beds for instant curb appeal.

Coneflowers are undergoing a revolution. It all began with the Purple Coneflower, a cherished Wildflower Spirit native to the Midwest, Southeast, and Southern Plains. This beloved prairie plant was once used medicinally by American Indians, and you will still find it today on drug store and supermarket shelves under its Latin name, Echinacea, as a supplement for treating colds. Purple Coneflower was used along with other species of American Coneflowers by breeders at PanAm Seeds, a division of Ball Horticultural of West Chicago, Illinois, to develop Sombrero® Adobe Orange. In their hybridizing work, breeders sought to develop compact, well-branched plants in a tantalizing shade of orange. Success!

How to use Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflower in the landscape?

Plant some extra Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflowers, so you’ll have plenty for bouquets for the table all summer. The lightly fragrant blossoms are superb for cut arrangements. Make any room in your home more cozy and inviting with fresh-cut flowers from the garden!

How To Plant Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflower

For best results, plant Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflower in a sunny site or in a spot that receives shade only during the hottest part of the day. The soil should be of medium fertility and must drain freely. Cold, boggy soil in winter is not its friend. Coneflowers love heat and are slow to emerge, so be patient.

How To Water

Water as soon as they arrive! Coneflowers need to be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil for proper establishment in the landscape. As they become established, they become drought tolerant.

How To Fertilize

When it comes to fertilizing your Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflower, the best time to do so is in early spring as your Coneflowers are breaking dormancy. They only need to be fertilized once a year but be sure to use an all natural fertilizer like the Bower & Branch Elements Starter Plant Food - chemical fertilizers will burn your plants if over applied!

How To Prune

Deadheading spent flowers will keep plants looking their freshest, but the seedheads do provide winter interest, so leave them alone to enjoy four-season beauty. Cut old stems down before new growth appears in spring.
