This series of compact, well-branched coneflowers comes in an array of deeply saturated, non-fading colors. Salsa  bears scarlet, red blossoms with a matching cone - sturdy stems and large flowers. The prickliness of the leaves and stems of echinacea make them resistant to deer browsing. Nativar. 



Echinacea are native to central and eastern U.S. and are well adapted to withstand severe conditions. Light, loamy soil is best but any well-drained dirt will do. They like it sunny and hot. Deadheading spent flowers significantly prolongs their bloom time. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter. Allow some spent blooms to remain on the plants in fall since their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds.
