Coneflower Echinacea x hybrida 'Sombrero® Sandy Yellow' US7,982,110; PP23,104
Coneflower Echinacea x hybrida 'Sombrero Sandy Yellow'

Bold colored floriferous coneflowers truly hardy to zone 4.

('Balsomselo') A new series of Coneflower bred to produce sturdy, well-branched compact plants that offer a high bud count. This selection produces very large, single flowers with bright yellow, overlapping petals surrounding a large brown cone. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for cutting. Coneflowers begin blooming midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. However keeping some dried flower heads on the plants in fall will provide food for wintering birds. Dried seed heads also add interest to the winter garden. USPP#23104: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
