Echinacea Kismet® Red Description

Kismet® Red Echinacea is part of a new generation of coneflowers that were developed for a combination of outstanding summer bloom, vivid color, and better winter survival than other types.  Kismet® coneflowers are hardy as north as Minnesota - brrr!  Very large true-red flowers bring glamour and drama to the garden, especially when paired with a beautiful blue, like perovskia or bluebeard.

Highlights of Kismet Red coneflower:

  • Prolific  -- Crowns multiply well naturally, which means the plant produces more leaves and more flowers than other coneflowers.
  • Dense & compact -- at just 16-18" tall and 24" wide, everyone has room for this neat little coneflower. 
  • Blooms  -- Though they are very large and bold, the brightly colored blooms are held on strong, sturdy stems. No one will pass by this plant in your garden, especially since it blooms up to five months every summer!
  • Stays fresh  -- Fresh, clean, new blooms keep coming all summer long.
  • Cut flower  -- It looks amazing in the garden and amazing in a vase indoors - cut all you want, as these long-lasting flowers keep coming all summer
  • Easy to grow  -- Not fussy about soil type provided drainage is good.  Better winter survival than other coneflowers.  Low water needs once established.

Soil: Any well-drained soil will do.
Light: Full sun -- Plant them in a spot that gets at least 5 hours of full sun a day. If planted in too much shade, plants may flop or strain to reach the sun.
Water: Average -- Water regularly the first season to encourage good root growth. Though coneflowers handle heat and dry conditions well once established, they appreciate regular watering and will flower more if they are not stressed..
Spacing: 16 - 22 inches
Fertilizing: Little needed. Over fertilizing will cause spindly growth, so once in the spring with a granular garden fertilizer is more than sufficient.
Winterizing: Avoid damp spots. Do not heap mulching over crowns in winter, as this can cause rot. Leave the foliage and old flowers standing for winter (birds enjoy the seed heads), then trim back or remove spent foliage in early spring before new growth emerges.
Maintenance & pruning: Once planted, they are best left alone, as they do not transplant well. Deadheading (snipping off the spent blooms) is not necessary but does increase new flower production.
