Echinacea 'Hot Summer'
These are beautiful! I cant capture the color exactly but the blooms start out golden orange and turn red over a few days.
This is the strongest orange/red Echinacea. It's the only one I've ever seen that got stronger the second year. Others were smaller the second year.
Tip: Improve drainage when planting. I added soil conditioner, sand and composted cow manure. I also added some bone meal. This plant is about 3 feet tall! I think it's a keeper!
