Long lasting blooms
Botanical Name: Echinacea Kismet® Intense Orange
Hardiness Zone: 4-9
Echinacea 'Intense Orange' combines a dense, compact form with huge flowers and an incredible will to keep on blooming! Buds begin to open in late spring and continue to show off brilliant, striking orange rays surrounding deeper orange cones right until a hard freeze in the fall.
'Intense Orange' grows best in a sunny location. Fertilize yearly with an organic fertilizer. Well-drained soil is a must. Flowers are long lived but can be deadheaded when past to encourage more bloom. Leave spent flowers on in fall for the birds who love the seed in the cones. Cut back near ground in late winter
