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 beautifully, 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 3 garden ready plants, ready to plant, growing to a height of 60 cm (2 ft) and spread of 40 cm (16 in).

Top Tips

  • Cut back the stems of faded flowers to encourage more or leave them on the plants to produce seed for your garden birds.

Care Information

  • Give your garden ready plants a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover. If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • If planting directly into flower beds when all risk of frost has passed, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already humus rich.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Echinacea are generally pest free, although young growth may be damaged by slugs.
