Echinacea 'Sombrero Lemon Yellow'

Coneflower

Plant Type: Perennial

SOMBRERO® Lemon Yellow produces rich yellow blossoms with a copper cone. The petals overlap, giving the flowers a fuller, more polished look. They are freely produced from early through late summer. SOMBRERO® Echinaceas are evenly matched for habit and timing, making them a breeze in production. They are all very well-branched, sturdy plants that bulk up quickly, do not require vernalization to bloom, and are loaded with buds for a vibrant show of color.

Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
