Echinacea purpurea 'Green Twister'

Details

'Green Twister' is a wonder! From the dark cone; emerge petals of red, merging to dark, then light pink and finishing off with a sweep of lime green.

Extend their life by leaving the flowers on the stem over the winter. They will provide seeds and a perch for any brave birds out and about at that time. Leaving the stems and flowers until springtime has many benefits, the one above as well as …if you cut the stems they can act almost like a straw and funnel the water down into the root, possibly rotting the crown. Leave the stem and the flower until spring time to avoid this possibility. Echinaceas are excellent, long-blooming flowers that are excellent massed in the border, meadows, native plant gardens, naturalized areas and wildflower gardens. They are bee magnets and provide long-lasting colour throughout the summer.
