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.
