Sombrero Adobe Orange Coneflower displays a natural appeal in any garden with its earthy, deep orange blossoms. This native (Echinacea) hybrid combines uniquely intense orange petals with a typical coneflower orange center and deep green foliage below for a sea of natural contrast in garden beds, landscape meadows, or containers. It can tolerate both salt and drought, giving it appeal to coastal and dry areas of zones 4 through 9.
As a plant native to North America, coneflower is an easy-care, drought-tolerant flower that attracts butterflies but resists munching deer. The flowers of Sombrero Adobe Orange rise about 18 to 20 inches above the dark green foliage in an upright shape. Blooms appear all summer, and can highlight garden beds or hardscape borders, meadows or hillsides, and containers. Plant this echinacea as a filler before taller flowers or grasses. The plants also produce pretty orange cut or dried flowers for arrangements.
Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflower Care
Echinaceas grow in nearly any soil, except when it drains poorly and becomes muddy or mucky. Plant this flower in partial to full sun for best flowering, ensuring it gets at least 6 hours of sunlight each day. After planting, mulch the top of the soil around the plant with some organic compost, which will break down and feed the plant over the summer.
Water your new plant every day to every other day for the first week or so, and gradually cut watering back. In its second year, the coneflower will need no supplemental watering unless there is no rainfall for 8 weeks or more. This plant can adapt to drought, plus handle summer heat and wind. Deadhead, or remove faded flowers, during summer to ensure more blooms. You can cut back deadheading at the end of summer so birds can enjoy the seeds in fall. Then, prune the coneflower nearly to the ground in late winter.
Sombrero® Adobe Orange Coneflower Spacing
In a meadow, mass planting, or border, give coneflowers enough room to grow to their mature height and spread and to get air circulation. Space this coneflower about 18 to 20 inches from its center to the center of other plants.
