The stunning blooms of the Vintage Ruby Coneflower look positively jewel-like when they open in midsummer. Also known as Echinacea x Sunmagic Vintage Ruby, this hybrid coneflower develops a mass of flat open flowers in shades of ruby red from July until September. This is a compact cultivar with a height of up to 2 feet.

Originally a native of North America, the Vintage Ruby Coneflower is perfect for attracting bees and butterflies. Exceptionally cold hardy, Vintage Ruby grows well in zones 4 to 9. This coneflower is ideal for providing late summer color and interest to a border or for growing in a container. 

Vintage Ruby Coneflower Care

Vintage Ruby Coneflower produces the best flowers when planted in full sun and in well-drained soil. It does not tolerate wet feet, so water only when the top 2 inches of soil are dry and err on the drier side. Fertilizing is not usually necessary. Instead, an annual mulch in spring will help give the plant a boost. 

Deadhead as the blooms fade by cutting the bloom stem back to a leaf or new bud, which will encourage new blooms. When dormant in winter, simply cut back all growth to just above ground level to allow new growth to emerge. 

Vintage Ruby Coneflower Spacing

Remaining compact, the Vintage Ruby Coneflower grows to around 18 to 24 inches tall and wide. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart or slightly closer for a denser effect.

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.
