‘Green Twister’ has lemon-lime petals that transition to a light pink or carmine red near the center cone. A robust plant with strong stems to hold the flowers upright when they bloom in mid-summer to fall. Stems lengthen after the first year and make excellent cut flowers. This plant is a natural mutation of ‘Magnus’, it is not a hybrid and therefore overwinters better than many modern hybrids. Coneflowers are well known for attracting butterflies and other pollinators and the seeds are relished by birds in the autumn. Drought resistant once established and easy to grow in sun and light shade.

Easy to grow in full sun to part shade but flowers best in full sun. Adapts to drought, moist soil, heat, humidity and poor soil. Let flowers go to seed and you will find finches and other songbirds eating the seed in late summer and fall.
