Need a fresh, cool, and modern addition to your sun garden? The Proven Winners® Green Jewel Coneflower PP #18678 (Echinacea purpurea 'Green Jewel') is a fragrant jewel every garden must have! Featuring a large, green cone-like center that is surrounded by soft-green petals that stay true to their color as they age! Green Jewel Echinacea was discovered by Piet Oudolf and introduced through Future Plants, and is now delivered to your door by Nature Hills!

These tender perennials sprout every spring and fill out with rough scratchy dark green leaves that are sword-like and form upright clumps. Green Jewel has truly lime-green flowers with a nice compact growth habit. It is perfect for fresh-cut or dried floral arrangements! Easy care and low maintenance perennials, Coneflowers are wonderfully colorful plants that bloom from summer til frost!

Echinacea are fantastic pollinator plants calling bees and butterflies and are nectar-rich pollen resources for native species and beneficial pollinators. These long-lasting blossoms usually rebloom without deadheading, but if spent flowers are removed, this procedure will encourage continued beautiful blooms and improve the plant's general appearance in gardens throughout USDA planting zones 3 to 8.

Planting and Application:

Echinacea is known for its large flower heads that turn to seeds in the fall. It is a great choice for cut flowers, and Green Jewel adds a modern and upscale wilderness look to your garden. Pot up on large planters or add to garden beds and borders, Pollinator gardens, and unique Cottage gardens. Not only is it a prized perennial for many gardeners, but it is also said to be a potent medicine for colds and flu!

This Coneflower keeps coming all summer on tall plants with excellent branching. It is also deer-resistant. If you leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall their seeds provide winter food for birds like Goldfinch! You can enjoy the dried seed heads as well because they will provide architectural interest in the winter.

As unique on the porch planter or patio mixed container garden as Green Jewel is in the landscape, any sunny location can enjoy these cool green blooms! Try creating an all-green garden with lush variegated foliage plants and shrubs, Limelight Panicle Hydrangeas, Lemon Drop Sedum, Sunny Seduction™ Yarrow, Creme Brulee Coreopsis, Miss Manners Obedient Plant, and Ice Ballet Butterfly Plant for a curious sun garden that pollinators will adore!

Create a wonderful cut flower garden with these limey blooms and enjoy their cool hue in Rock Gardens, firewise landscaping, and in some more harsh locations like the hell strip along a garden pathway, sidewalk, driveway, or en masse throughout commercial sites in the sun! (Don't worry, the deer and rabbits leave them very well alone!)
