Hello Everyone, I hope you are having a great week. Last summer while on a garden tour with my Horticultural Society I purchased one of the Sunset series Echinacea.
This coneflower produces loads of fragrant, single blossoms which open red-orange and lighten to golden orange as they expand and age.
Meet 'Summer Sun'. A reliable solution for hot, windy locations where nothing else will grow.
It is very tough and durable. Cutting off the faded flower stems will prolong flowering.
But, it does not like winter wetness, which is not a problem with my sandy soil.
It will grow to 40" high in full sun or part shade.
Thank you for stopping in and I hope you enjoyed the visit!!
