Echinacea 'Green Jewel' is an amazing not-so-purple coneflower in Granny Smith apple green.
'Green Jewel' is an incredibly unique Echinacea purpurea discovered by Piet Oudolf. Light green ray petals surround the large, green cone of this sweetly fragrant coneflower. The plants have an upright habit and a height of just 20-24 inches, so no staking is required. Praised for their cheerful brightly coloured flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. The dried seed heads provide architectural interest in the winter and are a good food source for finches and other birds. Photo: Walters Gardens.
