NJ Bob, from your picture, the Hot Coral is still a pretty flower after it loses its orange color.

I like 'Hot Coral.' If you smell it, you'll see that it smells better than most other Echinacea. Sombrero 'Salsa Red' doesn't have the fragrance that it does. I like the way it has two colors of blooms on the plant at the same time. Another great thing about this variety is it is more compact than most of the others in the series.

It was the only Sombrero that overwintered for me.

NJ Bob, it's good to know that Hot Coral overwintered for you. That means it might overwinter in Missouri

I'm retired Fishing is my job.
I am quite happy with the one that I have. It is in a 15" pot in full sun. Mine is in its 4th year. This year I moved it to a pot because it was shaded and doing poorly. It has bloomed continously like never before. I really like the growth habit as it has stayed about 12" tall. Color is excellent too.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Happy plant. Just wanted some more sun. This color and Flamenco Orange are hard colors to photograph and get to look accurate I think.

I agree It's now a happy little plant and is rewarding me for giving it what it needed. Yes, it's hard to reproduce the different shades of orange so that they render accurately. Last year I didn't much care for Adobe Orange then I bought one last month and I can appreciate the subtle differences of the orange varieties. Hot Coral is a brighter, more vivid orange compared to most other orange echies. Adobe Orange is a lighter but still bright shade of orange.

I do like the growth habit , nice and compact. It does appear to be the best grower of the series.

One of the Salsa Red has stopped blooming so it might need a little fertilizer. The other two are doing well. Is Adobe Orange a lot like Hot Coral? Mine is still compact.

I'd post a picture of mine but it's being attacked by sunflower moth larvae and I'm cutting off young flowers before they're fully open. Hopefully in a short time I'll have enough blooms to make an attractive picture. The first post/picture in this thread is May 2012 which means that this is the same plant 3 years on. Not too bad for a Sombrero variety.

I have not had Adobe long enough to tell how it will grow.

Here is mine 3 years later. There is visible damage to the blooms from sunflower moth larvae and maybe something else. Overall the plant is quite healthy and happy.
