I've got one of these...don't thing I have one of much else...lol. Anyhow this one seems to be doing very well. Nice yellow color and medium height. Have to like it. That's a Julia on the bottom right.

I've tried Sandy yellow several times but rotten luck with that one. I had one, only one, that survived 2 seasons then never returned. Lowes had no Sombreros except Hot Coral and Adobe Orange this year which is unusual for them.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Pretty but my luck with Sombrero series has not been good. Trying one this year has been enough.

I have 3 Salsa Red that overwintered and a a Hot Coral that is probably in the 4th year. Nothing else lived. I'm hoping that Adobe Orange survives the winter but it has to live through the Kansas furnace that is called summer first.

BTW I have started removing the old potting mix from the Lowe's plants by immersing them in a bucket of water before I plant them in a new larger pot. This frees up the rootball and gives them a fresh start. In the past I've not had good luck with their plants soon after taking them home so I'm doing it differently this year. I've only bought 2 echinaceas from there this year.

I always remove their mix, more bark then soil.

This is a new technique for me and I worry about the heat right now.
