Echinacea purpurea ‘Green Twister’
Echinacea purpurea ‘Green Twister’ coneflower has unique lemon green, daisy shaped flowers that merge into dark pink, and surround an orange-brown cone. The plant forms a strong, sturdy and hardy clump. Echinacea are a magnet for butterflies and pollinators. Plant in groups to make the biggest impact in the garden. Makes a great combination with button shaped flowers like Monarda. Deadheading faded flowers helps promote re-bloom. We grew Echinacea ‘Green Twister’ from seed in 2018 and it has wintered over in our nursery beds. It is ready for planting early spring. Photo courtesy of Jelitto Seeds.

All plant sales are purchased through The Gardener’s Club at Plant Paradise Country Gardens in Caledon Ontario. As the 2017 Destination Garden Centre of the Year, we have been growing and selling hardy, unique and hard-to-find perennials organically for over 12 years. We are always trialing and testing them in the botanical gardens at Plant Paradise Country Gardens. Our growing practices benefit the whole environment, including the pollinators and beneficial insects.
At Plant Paradise Country Gardens we control every aspect of growing plants on-site. This begins with mixing soil in the potting shed and all the steps in between until the fully grown plants are ready for your garden. This gives us the opportunity to have control over the quality. Our responsibility is to grow healthy plants that are environmentally sustainable. We use only organic gardening methods to grow high quality plants without the use of pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers. Our plants are available in one, two or three gallon containers.
We DO NOT use NeoNicotinoids which is a pesticide used by many plant nurseries that sell to garden centres and big box stores. This pesticide is a known cause of the decline in the bee population. Everything a grower uses in plant production is systemically released into the molecular structure of the plant. This becomes a chain reaction in the long-term health and vibrancy of the plant and your growing environment.
By supporting our environmentally sustainable organic perennial nursery you’ll be a part of the positive change that makes a difference in our environment. We believe you’ll see the difference.
