Echinacea 'Green Twister' Coneflower



Echinacea 'Green Twister's unusual pink and green blooms that slightly cup upward are produced on sturdy plants that overwinter well. Because Echinacea 'Green Twister' is a seed strain of Coneflower Echinacea purpurea, the flower color will vary slightly from plant to plant. Deadhead to promote long blooming.

Echinacea purpurea is native from Colorado to the East Coast south to Florida.

Care and Growing Tips

It is the gardener's choice whether to deadhead the spent blooms or leave them on the plant for goldfinches to have the seeds. If the stems are left on the plant, you should cut them back to 3-5 inches above the ground in late winter or early spring before the new growth emerges.
We do not recommend covering coneflowers with mulch for the winter, because in our experiences, it can kill them instead of protect them. Coneflowers are very resilient on their own.
