(Coneflower) Green Envy™ Echinacea is a true collector's plant with rare greenish white flowers. The flowers emerge with lovely rounded petals with pink tones near the green cone. As the flowers mature, the petals elongate and the deep green cone gradually changes to dark purple. Green Envy™ blooms from mid summer until frost! Very unusual!

Coneflower - Green Envy Details:

The Coneflower 'Green Envy', Echinacea purpurea 'Green Envy', is an easy to grow flower that produces beautiful light green fading to pink daisy-like flowers. The Green Envy blooms from July to September and is a major attractor to butterflies and bees and is a must for any perennial gardens. The pretty flowers occur on tall dark green stems with dark green foliage.

For best results, plant in full sun in a well drained area. Cone Flowers are known for their large flower heads that turn to seed in the fall. A great choice for cut flowers, adding a wilderness look to your garden, it is a definite must.


I just love coneflowers, but these two toned green and pinks…. they are incredible.  I will definitely be on the lookout this spring.  Won’t you?
