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. Zone 3-8.

15 seeds
