Green Envy Coneflower
The Coneflower ‘Green Envy’, Echinacea purpurea ‘Green Envy’, is an easy to grow perennial that produces beautiful, light-green fading to pink, Daisy-like flowers. The pretty flowers rise high on tall, dark-green stems with dark-green foliage. For best results, plant in full sun in a well drained area.
The ‘Green Envy’ blooms from July to September and is a major attractor to butterflies and bees. It a must for any perennial gardens.
Echinacea is known for its large flower heads that turn to seed in the fall. It is a great choice for cut flowers, and it adds a wilderness look to your garden.
Not only is it a prized perennial for many gardeners, but it is also said to be a potent medicine. Echinacea is said to increase immune function, reduce the effects of colds and flu, fight off viral, bacterial and fungal infections and purify the blood and flush waste from the lymphatic system.
‘Green Envy’ usually reblooms without deadheading, but if spent flowers are removed, this procedure will encourage continued beautiful blooms and improves general appearance. However, if you leave the seed heads on the plant, you will attract song birds that come to feast on the seeds! Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years). ‘Green Envy’ is deer and rabbit resistant.
