Echinacea Green Jewel, Coneflower
Green Jewel Coneflower, Echinacea, is green on green on green! Soft green petals surround large green fragrant cones. Flowers are born on strong green stems over large green mounds of foliage. These unique flowers looks beautiful in the garden and in mixed bouquets.
Plant Coneflower, Echinacea, in full sun to part shade. Add a shovel full or two of organic matter to soil when planting. Tolerant of drought, but for best blooming keep well watered when plants are setting up bud and in bloom. Although they will bloom continually without deadheading, cutting back spent blooms will encourage more flowers. Coneflower’s seed heads are a favorite for dried flower arrangements and add considerable interest to winter landscapes. Goldfinches and other birds swarm to Coneflower seeds.
