Quick Overview:

‘Tomato Soup’ is a bright tomato-red coneflower. It is an upright perennial that typically grows in a clump to 2-3’ tall on sturdy, well-branched stems that do not need staking. Large flowers (to 5″ diameter) feature slightly drooping, tomato-red rays with rounded, dark yellowish-brown center cones. Flowers bloom from late spring to late summer, sometimes with additional sporadic bloom until frost.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. This is an adaptable plant that is tolerant of drought, heat, humidity and poor soil. Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years). Plants rebloom well without deadheading, however prompt removal of spent flowers encourages continued bloom and improves general appearance.  Allow some seedheads to remain if you want the plants to reseed and for the birds.
