Tomato Soup Coneflower
Large, Red, and Spicy On a Stem
Echinacea Tomato Soup (Coneflower), Echinacea 'Tomato Soup', is the brightest red Echinacea yet and quite the attention-grabber; blooms are 3.5” across and have a strong spicy fragrance.
Because 'Tomato Soup' is well-branch and vigorous, it produces more blooms than others and offers many new possibilities for garden combinations!
It is a long lasting flower that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds and is great in cut flower arrangements! The bright, red intense flowers are supported on strong stems; best if grouped or massed.
This Echinacea will present a season full of red daisy-like flowers and is praised for its prolonged blooming after other perennials have faded.
Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years. 'Tomato Soup' usually reblooms without deadheading, but if spent flowers are removed, this procedure will encourage continued beautiful blooms and improves general appearance. This plant is deer resistant.
If you leave some spent blooms on the plants in fall their seeds provide winter food for birds. You can enjoy the dried seed heads as well, because they will provide architectural interest in the winter.
Enjoy 'Tomato Soup' and its bright tomato red blooms that will scream summer, especially when combined with bright purples and all shades of yellow!
* Huge 3.5" Intensely Red Blooms
* Spicy Fragrance
* Heat and humidity tolerant
