Give your garden a twist this year with the Green Twister Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea 'Green Twister') and its pinwheels of whimsical green-tipped, pink-to-magenta blooms! Echinacea are wonderfully hardy sun perennials and this unique bi-colored flower will have everyone twisting their heads to get a better look!

Green Twister forms mounds of gorgeous, coarse-textured green foliage all growing season long. Followed by the summer flush of curious blooms that add their dazzling color combo to your sunny landscapes!

Coneflowers are fantastic xeric and fire-wise flowering perennials. Also quite cold, heat and humidity tolerant, they thrive in full sun all day long, but won't often be damaged by deer. Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 3 through 8, Green Twister keeps blooming until autumn when regularly deadheaded.

Planting and Application:

Coneflowers are drought-tolerant perennials typically used in perennial, pollinator and wildflower gardens, or as sun garden edging or border plants. But the unusual flower color combo of Green Twister means eye-catching specimens and focal points! The fancy landing pads are an open invitation to both nectar-sipping pollinators and bees looking to gather pollen! Birds peck the seeds out of the fall seedheads that remain spikey winter interest.

Green Twister is xeric and thrives when plated en masse along hot, dry swaths of sunbaked ground, or along that tricky hell strip by the road or sidewalk! Add pops of color to mixed plantings and Rock Gardens! They look great with other ray flowers, ornamental grasses, and with almost any other color blooms around! Even indoors, the bi-color blooms add a fancy pop of refreshing color to bouquets and floral arrangements!

  • Unique Bi-Color Magenta & Green Petals
  • Coarse Glossy, Dark Green Pointed Leaves
  • Tough, Hardy Perennial Mounding Plants
  • Vital For Pollinators & Cut Flower Bouquets
  • Borders & Edging, Rock Gardens, Unique Specimens & Xeric En Masse

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Echinacea are a family of delightfully low-maintenance, sun-loving herbaceous perennials that thrive in tough conditions once established. Plant in about any kind of well-drained soil with regular moisture for new plants, but after, Coneflowers are very drought tolerant and have low-moisture needs. For best flowering though, provide supplemental moisture throughout tough times and hot summers. Mulch the mounds with 3-4 inches of arborist bark chips. Deadhead to encourage new blooms, then prune back mounds in late fall after the foliage yellows.

  • Full Sun
  • Thrives in Most Well-Drained Soil Types
  • Moderate Moisture & Low Water Needs Once Established
  • Xeric, Drought, Firewise & Adaptable
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Back Late Fall
  • Low-Maintenance & Easy To Grow!
