Irresistible to butterflies, long-blooming, ultra-colorful, and carefree -- what could be more delightful than a large stand of brilliant Echinacea?

The petals are held nearly straight out from the bloom, instead of bent back like many other Coneflowers, giving Green Twister more color on every giant bloom. And there are simply so many blooms -- they begin in midsummer and continue into fall! When they finally do pass, be sure to let the birds feast on the huge mahogany-brown coneheads, or harvest them for dried arrangements.

Carefree in any sunny spot, these drought-tolerant plants reach 3½ feet tall, tolerating light shade though best in the blazing heat. Bearing literally hundreds of blooms over its many months of color, Green Twister is a garden workhorse, yet looks so effortless and lush in the sunny bed or border!

Super-easy to start from seed, this Echinacea blooms the first year and for many years thereafter, lasting through the worst heat and dry weather summer has to offer. The flowers are also superb in the vase--if you can tear them away from the butterflies, that is! A natural treasure, Coneflower belongs in almost every garden with space for plenty of colorful, long-lasting blooms! Zones 3-8. Pkt is 20 seeds.

I love these and all the coneflowers. Harvest the seeds at the end of season and plant in the spring.

First year bloom comes late but worth the wait

Germination is so -so. Plants started in March, set out in June and bloomed in September. Flowers are unique just as pictured and held on stout stems, Certain that they will bloom earlier in subsequent years, An attractive and unique echinacea.

Easy to germinate. I’m trying these this spring, and so far, have been easy to germinate these. Can’t wait until they’re in my gardens.

Low count, be warned

I just received this packet and there’s actually only 17 seeds. However, the seeds are all good sized. I know the seed counts are estimates but 15% less makes a difference for planning purposes. I’ll update after they’ve sprouted.
