Plants shipped in fall require winter protection. We recommend transplanting to a 4" pot from a plug, not a larger size container if you receive the plants in the fall. Grow with 50 – 55° F nights and 55 – 65° F days. Facultative Long Day plant. Daylength extension up to 16 hrs. has proven beneficial for promoting flowering. Low pH can be fatal.
Echinacea 'Chiquita' simply has it all; a naturally short habit, high crown count, very large flowers for a dwarf and a lovely, soft yellow color. No other Echinacea has this color or habit. As a container plant, 'Chiquita' is a star performer and in the garden, nothing could light up a tight space like this fragrant, easy to grow gem.
