Bright daisies of cream, yellow, gold, orange, scarlet, red, and purple top these stocky little plants from midsummer all the way into fall, replacing themselves without you having to cut or deadhead them. Every color in the mix reaches about the same size, and the flowers are very long-lasting in garden or vase. Best of all, Cheyenne Spirit demonstrates great resistance to wind and rain, bouncing back after a storm much more effectively than other Echinacea varieties.
And unlike older Echinacea varieties, Cheyenne Spirit blooms the very first year -- just 23 to 24 weeks after a January sowing! So get out your Bio Dome or seed flats and prepare to dazzle the garden with bright, easy-care Coneflowers in every color!
Once Cheyenne Spirit establishes itself in your garden -- within a single season with a little TLC! -- it is very drought-tolerant, and stands up to heat, humidity, and cold effortlessly. This makes it a godsend in today's hotter summers and unpredictable winters!
This plant reaches 18 to 30 inches high and about 12 to 20 inches wide, with dark green foliage and very strong, thick stems supporting the bounty of blooms. When transplanting your seedlings, space the plants about 10 to 14 inches apart in the sunny garden, and then jump back. You're about to be overwhelmed with brilliant nonstop color!
Bred by Jian Ping Ren of Illinois, Cheyenne Spirit is from the same program as Echinacea PowWow Wild Berry. It's a bright new day for Coneflowers, and this lively mix is THE new seed variety you must grow!
