Green Twister Echinacea

We have been waiting two years to introduce this first year flowering, irresistible echinacea. The petals on each flower have alternating shades of lime mingled with shades of pink creating a unique array of colors on a single plant. Sturdy 3’ tall plants are a natural mutation of the variety Magnus, allowing abundant, ever-changing colors from mid-summer to fall. 

15 seeds

Anxiously awaiting the flowers!

The germination rate was about 70% ... which was a little disappointing but the little plants are looking great and I am anxiously awaiting the flowers!
