Echinacea Sombrero Sangrita for Sale Online
Echinacea Sombrero Sangrita is a hybrid Coneflower that produces vivid orange flowers that transition into a magnificent scarlet red. The summer bloomer grows in a compact form and makes a gorgeous and dramatic addition to any garden.
As a member of the hybrid Sombrero Series, the Sangrita has impressive drought tolerant tendencies and enjoys conditions of full sun. These hardy herbaceous perennials grow best in well-drained soil but are tolerant of a wide range of conditions. We recommend pruning spent blooms for optimal growth.
Although this plant looks amazing in a mixed garden, it is bold enough to stand on its own in a container garden. The plant's dark green foliage contrasts beautifully with the warm burnt orange blooms for a grand statement piece in the yard. The iconic flowers also work great in cut flower arrangements!
Sombrero Sangrita Coneflowers are famously easy to care for and can thrive in sunny parts of your garden that can be difficult to find things to plant in.

What is the best light for Echinacea Sombrero Sangrita?
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 Sangrita?
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 backfilling the hole, you may want to mix in some organic material such as compost or topsoil to the existing soil for added nutrients.
How often should I water my Echinacea Sombrero Sangrita Plant?
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 Sangrita 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 yellow blooms.
