Plant Information

For years before Echinacea was a favorite of the herbal medicine industry, it was always one of the loveliest wildflowers on the plains.

This large pink-to-purple daisy is a mainstay of all well-grown wildflower meadows, and is also a major colormaker in perennial borders. Cheyenne Spirit is a hybrid, taking all of the wonderful, tough qualities that make Echinacea a garden favorite and adding a splash of bold colors. Be sure to plant extra of this drought-tolerant beauty for summer bouquets!

      Comments about American Meadows Double Scoop® Orangeberry Echinacea:

      Order only in the spring, unless you live in the South. My order was shipped in the fall, and only one of four plants survived. American Meadows said, "When fall planting, it is important to ensure that new transplants will have a minimum of six (6) weeks in the ground for root acclimation before they are exposed to freezing temperatures. As shipping for our fall planting season does not begin until mid to late September, this may not provide enough time for your plants to fully acclimate before encountering freezing temperatures in a zone 5 location."

          Q & A

          Plant With These:

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
