Why the Sombrero® Lemon Yellow Coneflower?

Does your landscape take a siesta in summer? After the spring blooms are spent, does it just turn green? Wake it up with Sombrero® Lemon Yellow Coneflower! This perky new Spirit will energize your landscape with scads of sunny golden blossoms over a long season. Try it with other vibrantly colored blooms, such as Adobe Orange Coneflower and Salsa Red Coneflower (both also from the Sombrero® line) for extra impact. 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® Lemon Yellow. In their hybridizing work, breeders sought to develop compact, well-branched plants in a rich shade of yellow. Success!

How to use in the landscape?

Plant some extra Sombrero® Lemon Yellow 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!

Why Bower & Branch?

We do the hard part. Our trees and plants are grown and cared for by only the best, local growers for years before they find their forever home in your landscape. Bower & Branch is known for having hard-to-find, substantial sizes and selection. The quality of our trees and plants are consistent in health and vigor—always ready for immediate impact in your garden and instant curb appeal. We believe in empowering homeowners with the truth about strong, healthy and structurally sound plants that are grown to perform in the ground after they leave the nursery for home delivery, always fresh inventory from the grower.

How To Plant

For best results, plant Sombrero® Lemon 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. 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. 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.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

Trim the Sombrero® Lemon Coneflower after the first wave of summer blooms are spent, and you’ll be rewarded with another flush of flowers. Cut old stems down before new growth appears in spring.
