Prolific Flowering
Unexpected bicolor flowers are luscious pink tipped in pistachio green. Daisy-like flowers with broad petals, this Coneflower is aptly named Sandia which means watermelon in Spanish. A long blooming sweet summer treat. Carefree once established, Coneflowers are a must-have to help support local pollinators. Both seasoned gardeners and newbies respect this plant for its reliable performance. Such a cheerful addition to perennial borders, they will bloom from summer to frost. Echinacea Sweet Sandia will also add a pop of color to your cut flower arrangements. It’s hard to imagine a sunny perennial border without Coneflowers. Birds love the seeds and we love the long-lasting bouquets.

Echinacea General Information

It is hard to imagine a sunny perennial border without Echinacea! So much color in summertime and very easy to grow, our offerings include classics and some of the newest and most exciting advances in Coneflowers. Butterflies love the flowers, birds love the seeds, and we love the generous long-lasting bouquets. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Echinacea Plant Care

Easy to grow, prolific bloomer. Deadheading will prevent seeding, but birds are crazy about the seeds, and the seedheads are attractive in the winter, especially in the snow. If removing them, leave the foliage at the base of the plant to overwinter. May be slow to emerge in the spring. These generally don't need to be divided, but can be divided in early spring or early fall.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
