Echinacea 'Cheyenne Spirit' is a hybrid cone flower.  It has a spectacular display of narrow leaf shaped petals surrounding a brown cone in various shades of orange, red, purple and cream. The Cone Flower is very attractive to butterflies and bees and makes an extremely attractive cut flower. It is a beautiful perennial plant this Echinacea variety has a fairly compact growth and is perfect for the summer flower border, prairie style planting or the dry garden. It is drought tolerant, although water in the first year until established and prefers full sun and a free-draining hummus rich soil.
