The Q&A Archives: Green Blooms

Question: Can you suggest flowers, especially perennials with green blooms? I am especially looking to plant light green lisianthus I have seen in stores. I am also looking for the Viridiflora tulips - white with light green stripes up the sides.

Answer: 'Envy' is a green zinnia available through Burpee. Park Seeds has Rudbeckia Green Wizard and an interesting Nigella Black and Green marbles. There are a number of green gladiola varieties. Try Jung, J. W., Seed Co. or Summerville's Gladiolus 801 Bridgeton Pike, Mullica Hill, NJ USA 08062, Telephone 856-223-1687. A plant source database search did not find the lisianthus or the tulip.
