The cheery yellow flowers on Sombrero Lemon Yellow coneflower add a punch of vibrant color to the garden. Wide, overlapping petals ensure that the flower's bold color makes a big impact. Plus, like other coneflowers, this is a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, and deer-resistant perennial that performs beautifully with little-to-no care. Birds, butterflies, and bees love these flowers. Remember to keep some of the old flowers up in fall and winter for visual interest and to feed the birds!
Sombrero Lemon Yellow has a more compact growth habit than other coneflower varieties. It will prove to be an essential part of any cut-flower garden, and adapts to a variety of conditions. Try it in a location that doesn’t get much care or maintenance, an exposed garden where other perennials won’t hold up, a wildflower installation, or in a cheery cottage garden.
Sombrero® Lemon Yellow Coneflower Care
Coneflowers are beloved low-maintenance flowers across the United States. All they need to thrive is a sunny location with well-drained soil. Fertilize annually in early spring.
Prune back old growth in the early spring. Water occasionally until well established. Sombrero Lemon Yellow coneflower will return year after year in Zones 4-9.
Sombrero® Lemon Yellow Coneflower Spacing
Give this coneflower 22-24” of space in the garden to allow room for the lush branching stems and prolific flowers.
