Echinacea purpurea 'Green Twister'


Echinacea 'Green Twister' has unusual lime green petals that transition to magenta around its dark red cone.

'Green Twister' is a strong and vigorous seed strain developed from the classic Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus', widely accepted as the best of all purple coneflowers. 'Green Twister' shares these strong genes but produces intriguing lime green petals that turn magenta near the dark red centre cone. It blooms abundantly from July through September on sturdy stems to 40 inches tall. Echinacea in coastal BC should be planted in hot sunny spots with thin poor soils to best survive the winter.
