£2.99

Echinacea - Red Cone Flower

The brilliant carmine colour, huge flowers and 'cut and come again' capabilities achieve a stunning effect in the garden and for house decoration. This variety is strong stemmed, very weather resistant and much longer lived than their close relation the Rudbeckia. It is an easy perennial for beds and borders, tolerating dry soil and wind. It flowers in the first season from an early sowing and generally flowers from mid-summer to winter. Height: 1m.

Sow early spring at 20-24C in a good seed compost just covering the seed with compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 10-21 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost 45cm apart. Plant in sun and ordinary well drained soil. Flowering is prolonged if the flower stalks are cut off as soon as the flowers fade.
