Big Sky™ Tiki Torch Coneflower -
The Tiki torch plant has won many awards for its intense appearance. A cross between Echinacea paradoxa and purpurea, it is an attractive flower with massive drooping petals. The showy herbaceous perennial is surprisingly tolerant and is definitely one of the bolder choices to light up your garden.
This exciting flower bursts in bright orange petals with a rust-tinged coppery center cone. It is showy plant that makes for beautiful vase flowers and can also be used as dried flowers. This prolific bloomer produces flowers in early summer to early fall.
For the Tiki Torch Coneflower, care is minimal requiring well-drained, dry to medium soils. When grown on rich soils the plant becomes leggy. The tiki torch flower grows up to a meter tall on strong, upright stems, amidst a background of green foliage. It is long-lasting, blooming for up to 4 weeks or more, and quite tolerant of different weather conditions. It is also best grow in full sun and requires occasional watering. The flower heads should be removed by fall to reduce the birds feeding on the seeds. Cutting back spent flowers and stems also encourages more blooms and reduces self-seeding. This helps the tiki torch to keep growing and thriving.
