Description / Sombrero® Flamenco Orange Coneflower

Flamenco Orange is a blazing beauty of a bloom, its long orange petals surrounding a generous brown cone that brings butterflies and bees on the wing. This compact, super cold-hardy selection of the native American perennial will perform beautifully for you in garden or container.

No more than 2 feet high and wide, this selection brings Echinacea into the realm of patio containers and smaller garden spaces without sacrificing flower power. The blooms are not only abundant, they are lightly fragrant, and pollinators adore them. Like all Coneflowers, Flamenco Orange attracts beneficial insects and deters pests, so you can even add it to the herb or vegetable garden as a guard plant. What a lovely addition to a food crop— and so useful.

And Flamenco Orange is a multiseason beauty. The blooms won't begin until the hot weather of summer arrives, but they continue into fall in most climates, and even when their petals drop, the big brown cones remain on the plant, drying out so that birds will come feast on their seeds. Get your camera ready.

The Sombrero® series of Echinacea has gotten a lot of praise, every bit of it well deserved. These plants are improved in so many ways:

•Much greater cold hardiness
•Longer season of flowering
•More flowers per plant
•Compact, dense habit.

Find a place for Flamenco Orange in your container garden, your sunny border, and your edible garden. Few plants can equal its merits, and you will fall in love with its rich beauty! Our well-rooted, transplant-sized seedlings are prepared to bloom the first year.
