How to Care for Echinacea Sombrero Salsa Coneflower
Be sure to read our planting instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
What is the best light for Echinacea Sombrero Salsa?
This coneflower thrives in the hard-to-plant full sun areas of your garden. While it can tolerate a number of light conditions, plant in full sun for optimal blooms.
What soil should I plant my Coneflower Sombrero Salsa Red?
One of the reasons this hybrid coneflower is so beloved is that it is tolerant of a very wide range of soils. Ideally it should be planted in rich, well-draining soil. When planting, you may want to add some organic material such as compost or topsoil to the existing soil for added nutrients.
How often should I water my Echinacea Sombrero Red Salsa?
Water weekly after planting but once the roots of your Sombrero Coneflower have established, the plant will be drought tolerant and can live off of low amounts of water. If you live in an especially sunny or warm area be sure to adjust accordingly.
Do I need to prune my Coneflower Plant?
As always, you can remove spent flowers (deadheading) or dead and dying stems, but coneflowers are able to thrive if left unpruned. However, if you would like, pruning in the early spring can improve the number and length of the blooms.
