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.

Plant Addicts Guarantee (Included On All Plant Orders)

Plant Addicts always guarantees your plant(s) will arrive happy & healthy. However, plant(s) are being shipped through the mail & sometimes accidents happen.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
