Large Blooms Blaze with the Brightest Red in Echinaceas!
There are a multitude of coneflowers out there today, but this one is the best; in fact, we consider it THE best of the reds! Its high-impact, pure red color blazes in the garden from large, 3-inch flowers whose wide overlapping petals make the most of the color show. 2-foot plants with a great branching habit produce a lot of blooms (a single plant can bear as many as 100 blooms!), and their strong stems hold up to wind and rain with no help from staking.
It’ll Give You Months of Bright Color!
Salsa Red is outstanding not just for the bright red of its blooms, but also for how long the color lasts in your garden. Blooms start in early summer and keep coming, even into fall. You don’t need to deadhead, but it will encourage the last few weeks of bloom if you do.
One of the Easiest plants You Can Grow, and Great for Wildlife!
Drought tolerant, it thrives despite heat, humidity and even poor soil, including clay or shallow, rocky soil! It does need good drainage, but that comes with being drought tolerant. A grouping creates a butterfly garden all by itself! And if you leave the cones on the plant, songbirds will forage on the seeds in fall and winter. Fortunately, deer and rabbits do not find it attractive.
Plant in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil. Let it dry a little between waterings. Be sure the location is well-drained, especially in the winter. Other than that, just sit back and enjoy the show!
