More Details

Heat-loving and water-wise, echibeckia make truly wonderful, very long-flowering container plants and long-lasting cut flowers. 'Summerina Brown' is a deep, rich and velvety copper, darkening to mahogany towards the centre of the flower.

The plants are compact and will bloom continually through all of summer and well into autumn. These hybrids are a real breakthrough in modern plant breeding. You get the floriferous appearance of rudbeckia with the hardiness and dark central cone of a perennial echinacea; excellent for attracting birds and pollinators.

Care Tips Water plants whenever necessary to keep the soil or compost moist during spring, summer and early autumn, to prolong flowering. Always try to water the soil or compost, rather than the foliage. In the growing season, apply a liquid plant food every couple of weeks to encourage more growth and bigger and better flowers. Although not necessary we recommend picking flowers regularly to promote flower production.

Vase Life 7-10 days. Add a little bleach to the water to prolong their vase life.
