    Maintenance Notes: 

    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! Standing 2' to 3' tall, the upright habit is the perfect size for gardens and landscapes. The long lasting flowers of 'Green Envy' attract butterflies and hummingbirds and are great in cut flower arrangements!

    '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.

    • I have this planted in an area that gets full sun up until 3:00PM and it’s doing fabulous. Stunning flowers. The color combination is gorgeous. The plant is sturdy and healthy. I just love this!
