Echinacea purpurea

Coneflower Green Twister and Magnus Superior Mix

R60.00

Both bee friendly varieties have been selected for their horisonal flower petals, which is unusual for this species. Magnus superior boasts dark carmine petals and Green twister starts out with green petals, turning pink in colour. After the petals deteriorate the bronze cone is equaly eye catching.
