Huge, beautiful flowers
Botanical Name: Echinacea Kismet® Raspberry
Hardiness Zone: 4-9
Echinacea 'Raspberry' is a coneflower full of long lasting blooms. Buds begin to open in late spring and continue to show off beautiful, rich 4" diameter blooms until a hard frost in the fall.
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.
