Description

One of the best strains of Echinacea is 'Ruby Star'. It is similar to E. 'Magnus' in that they both hold their petals in a horizontal arrangement, however, the petals of 'Ruby Star' are more substantial with a deeper magenta-red color.

Echinacea bloom over a long period, for many weeks, even a couple of months!

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Height: 24", 60 cm

Location: Sun or shade. Traditionally prefers full-sun locations, though we have plants in mostly-shady locations and they still bloom and grow well.

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. These seeds require a period of cold. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 2 weeks. They will not grow yet. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
