Echinacea ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ is an innovation in breeding and provides a brilliant colour range available for the first time from seed. Well-branched plants, compact growing habit and first-year flowering are only a few of the desirable attributes it offers. ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ currently consists of a mixture of rich shades of cream, golden yellow, orange, purple, rosy-red, scarlet and tomato-red. The flowers develop atop very sturdy stems in mid-summer.
In the landscape it performs best in locations with full sun to partial shade and develops attractive clumps reaching 18 to 24 inches tall by 16 to 20 inches wide. Hardy to USDA zones 4-9. ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ does not require a lot of water and can be used in perennial borders, mass plantings, butterfly gardens and as a cut flower.
