When Mark Veeder first showed me a photo of his new Echinacea purpurea seedling, I thought for sure this was an April Fool's Photoshop creation. Only after growing and photographing 'Green Envy' coneflower for myself, can I say for sure, it is truly this unique. The 20" tall stems are topped, starting in mid-June, with large 4.5" wide flowers composed of a dark cone with a green center...a hummingbird favorite. Surrounding the cone are long petals that are pink near the cone, changing to lime-green toward the downward recurving tips. Echinacea 'Green Envy' is so weird, gardeners will either love or hate it...we love it!
