June 2022 update; our perennial grower chose a really fun new variety this season… it’s called Green Twister. The large blooms start out a vibrant green, then as the bloom matures, a pinkish-red halo forms close to the center. The blooms can be as large as four inches in diameter!
Our PowWow White (large pure white flowers with a yellow center), PowWow Wildberry (fade proof rosy purple flowers from early summer to fall, compact size) and Cheyenee Spirit coneflower varieties are blooming nicely right now as well.
