An Echinacea in a neat little 8-inch pot, covered in big blooms? It's not a dream -- it's Sombrero™! Baja Burgundy is a richly colored flower, a combination of magenta, burgundy, purple, and terracotta shades unlike anything else in the garden. And this native perennial is a Sombrero™, so you know the plant stays small while the blooms just keep opening all season long!

The Sombrero® series 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

Baja Burgundy doesn't reach more than 2 feet tall and spreads just 18 to 20 inches wide, yet it is beautifully branched and sets as many flowers as older varieties twice its size. Now that's petal power!

A magnet for bees and butterflies in summer and birds in fall, this selection of the native species stands up to heat, humidity, poor soil, and even drought. In containers, it is a joy, needing little attention to keep flowering throughout the hot summer and early fall months. In the garden, it is a good friend to all surrounding plants, bringing in pollinators but discouraging destructive pests. Every landscape deserves a big stand of Coneflowers, and Baja Burgundy is one of the very best! Zones 4-9.
