ADD TO BASKET
  • Be one of the very first to grow this brand new variety, it adds an amazing tinge of colour to a mixed perennial garden.
  • Almost disregarded and thought to have something wrong with it, tests revealed it is 100% healthy and is actually a completely natural colour break (called a 'sport').
  • The green edges become more pronounced the older the plants get, and take a couple of years for the fresh lime green tips to be at their best.
  • Striking in a mixed border where it will really stand out, but just as ideal for pots and containers on the patio, it's a hardy perennial that will keep coming back year after year, even bigger and better!
  • Supplied in a 9cm pot – ideal for patios or orders!.

Full Product Details

Product Information

Echinacea, also known as the Coneflower, are hardy perennials that flower at the height of summer and continue until the first autumn frosts. The name refers to the cone-shaped centre of the large, brightly coloured flowers. Not only are they beautiful, they’re also one of the best plants you can grow for attracting all manner of wildlife into your garden.

‘Green Twister’ flowers in a vibrant clash of bright magenta and acid green in a stunning display throughout the summer. The unusual two-tone petals almost glow with brightness as they meet at the large, reddish brown central cone of the flower. The green edges become more pronounced as the plant ages, and it will take a couple of years for them to be at their very best.

An exceptionally robust variety, ‘Green Twister’ will flower up until the first autumn frosts, carries its flowers on long, straight stems which makes them ideal for cutting. They’re also attractive to bees and butterflies and are recommended by the RHS as a ‘Plant for Pollinators’. If you leave faded flowers on the plant, the seed heads will be enjoyed by your garden birds.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9 cm pot, ready to plant, growing to a height of 6 cm (2 ft) and spread of 4 cm (16 in).

  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
