"The deep reddish-burgundy flower color was a standout and the plants were consistently full and compact," said one AAS Judge about Echinacea Sombrero Baja Burgundy. The beautiful flower color is without equal among coneflowers and is perfect for cut flowers. After being trialed over three tough winters, the AAS Judges noted this standout’s hardiness, sturdy branching, and floriferous blooming habit. Bred by Darwin Perennials.

Winter Protection: Mulching with wood chips or leaf litter is a good way to protect the crown of the plant from cold damage in winter.

One of the most common Coreopsis killers is winter thaw and freeze. Mulching helps mitigate this and can be helpful in areas where mid-winter thaws are common such as mid-Atlantic states. Best to use a loose mulch like pine-straw or hay rather than leaves which breakdown easily. Be sure to wait until several hard frosts before cutting back dead foliage to make sure plants are completely dormant.

Echinacea Yellow My Darling - Tip: Choose plants that are hardy, avoiding plants that are less hardy than your zone.If you live in a zone 4, but can get away with growing perennials that are only hardy to zone 5 – this is not the best time to plant. These perennials need a full growing season for the best chance to overwinter, particularly as a young plant. In fact, it is safest to plant perennials that are one zone hardier than yours (planting a zone 3 perennial if you live in zone 4).
