Tomato Soup Echinacea

This amazing feast of flowers provides reliable color all summer long.  Tomato Soup expands the echinacea color palette by providing warm tomato red flowers that don’t fade to pink.  These plants are amazing companions to daylilies, heliopsis, sedums and ornamental grasses.   Versatile and tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions provided they remain well drained and don’t end up in a low or soggy location.  They attract birds and butterflies but are not considered of any great interest to deer.  Full sun is what they prefer to give you their best display, but will tolerate light shade.   Zone 4 hardy, they will grow to 24″ tall and wide.

Our perennial of the week, through Labor Day, (9-6-10) is at 10% off regular prices.
