Echinacea SOMBRERO® Series

The Echinacea SOMBRERO® Series of coneflowers includes compact, freely branched, early blooming selections with a range of colors including red, coral, pink, orange, yellow and white.  The Sombrero® series has been developed by Jianping Ren of the Ball Horticultural Company (West Chicago, Illinois) who is a prominent plant breeder.  The heavy flowering and strong stems of this series is impressive. The mature height of around 20″ or so makes them easy to incorporate into gardens and containers. Look for them at your local garden centers. They are excellent perennial additions to the garden and represent some of the best breeding to date with these hybrid coneflowers (Echinacea). -Courtesy of Mark Dwyer
