Green Twister Coneflower

These dazzling coneflowers are sure to grab attention—and attract butterflies—in the summer garden. Each flower is unique. Some of the 4-in., daisylike flowers have petals with lots of yellow-green hues, and some are more lilac-pink. All have prominent central cones. The blooms mature to darker shades of carmine red. The color variation looks impressive in the garden and cut-flower displays. Grows up to 40 in. tall. Blooms from mid to late summer. Like other coneflowers, Green Twister is a low-maintenance perennial that is drought tolerant, once established. Deer tend to avoid. Grows best in full sun. Zones 3-9.

  • CommentsGreen Twister is a unique and colorful coneflower selection. This lively green coneflower will show natural variation in the color and size of the green edge. Most flowers are light green but some are almost yellow-edged each with an increasing carmine-red center. Deer resistant and much loved by butterflies and bees. Excellent cut flower. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds.
