Echinacea "Tomato Soup"

Another beautiful introduction from Terra Nova. Tomato red flowers (hence the name) that are bigger than most at 5 inches across. Great vigor but as with all Terra Nova plants be careful early or if the go dormant with the water. They need to stay very dry. Being pushed as a compliment to "Mac and Cheese" but we here at think it goes well any light colored coneflower. Deadheading will greatly increase flower yield
