  • Summary
  • Additional Details

Echinacea 'Green Twister' is a seed strain selection of a natural mutation of 'Magnus' and overwinters well. Great as an accent plant in a naturalized garden or used in a border, this Echinacea blooms from mid-summer to fall. Great for pollinators in flower and great food for the birds in fall if seedheads are allowed to persist. Stems lengthen after the first year becoming a sturdy and beautifully unusual cut flower. Drought resistant after the plant is established.
