Put on your sombrero and enjoy a day in the sun followed by some tomato sangrita! Or better yet, dazzle your neighbors with a few Sombrero® Sangrita Coneflowers (Echinacea x 'Balsomanita') in your yard instead. These festive and bright perennials are one of the best ways to celebrate the beauty of summer and add rich color to your garden.
It's easy to see how the Sombrero® Sangrita Coneflower earned its name. Throughout summer it blooms with sombrero-shaped blooms that are the color of sangrita which is the same color as tomato juice. These bright blooms have a daisy shape with maroon to brown cones and scarlet-red to burgundy petals tipped with perfect points.
The Sombrero® Sangrita Coneflower isn't one of those plants that wilt and fade within a few days of flowering—they bloom for months! And it isn't shy when it comes to its blooms. This well-branched stunner dons a complete costume of vibrant blooms. Its stems are even a rich burgundy!
These large and showy blossoms are a butterfly favorite. Other beneficial pollinators love their enchanting reds and oranges, too. The Sombrero® Sangrita Coneflower makes every day Cinco de Mayo for your local pollinators.
To keep your Sombrero® Sangrita Coneflower shining its brightest, plant it in full sun. This glowing plant will perform its best with medium moisture soil that drains well. And when it's not in bloom, its lance-shaped foliage will keep your garden green and lively.
Because the Sombrero® Sangrita Coneflower has strong stems and colors that don't fade, it makes a wonderful hot sunny border that embodies the heat of the summer. It also provides a burst of color to a cottage garden with its consistent reds. Its compact size and prolific blooming produce a show-stopping sight that you and your neighbors will enjoy!
This variety outperforms others with its winter hardiness and even blooms. Let the Sombrero® Sangrita Coneflower light up your garden with its vivid flowers. Pair it with other Sombrero® varieties for festive color, large blossoms, and playground for pollinators. Order yours today!
