Green Twister Coneflower

Fascinating Color Combination

  • Yellow-green and lilac-pink flowers
  • Grows up to 40 in. tall
  • Butterfly magnet
  • Drought tolerant
  • Deer tend to avoid
These dazzling coneflowers are sure to grab attention—and attract butterflies—in the summer garden. Each flower is unique. Some of the 4-in., daisylike flowers have petals with lots of yellow-green hues, and some are more lilac-pink. All have prominent central cones. The blooms mature to darker shades of carmine red. The color variation looks impressive in the garden and cut-flower displays. Grows up to 40 in. tall. Blooms from mid to late summer. Like other coneflowers, Green Twister is a low-maintenance perennial that is drought tolerant, once established. Deer tend to avoid. Grows best in full sun. Zones 3-9.
