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.

Echinacea take a wide array of conditions from average dry soil to medium, well-drained soil in part shade to full sun. Plant flowers best in full sun. Low-maintenance and tolerates drought, humidity, heat, poor soil. Resistant to pest and disease but sometimes suspectible to aster yellows disease. To encourage longer bloom time, flower heads can be deadheaded but not necessary. Seedheads are a delightful source of food for birds.
