One of the arguments of those who don't care for green flowers is that they don't show up against equally green foliage. But many are flushed with white or other colours and that just makes them that much more appealing, in my books. Cool white and fresh green reminds me of snowdrops (also splashed with green on their delicate flowers) and that image is always pleasing to my heart. This is one of the masterworts (Astrantia), 'Star of Heaven'. Described as a white flower, but enough green in it to add it to my list!
Verbena 'Lanai Lime' is not only delicately flushed with green, the flowers are fragrant. I only discovered this year that some verbena have a wonderful fragrance, especially those in the Lanai series of colours. How happy this makes me! They have a scent like a lighter heliotrope. It's just wonderful.
I've never been impressed by the Pretty Much Picasso petunia, however, there is a new series of green petunias called the Kermit series. This one is Kermit 'Piggy', so naturally, with my fondness for Miss Piggy, I had to have it. It has been flowering like gangbusters all summer, too.
Normally, I like my nicotiana to have scent, like the species N. sylvestris and N. alata. However, I love the green flowered nicotiana, so I have this one from the Starmaker series, Starmaker 'Lime', in several containers and it has been flowering vigourously all summer, too.
Okay, it's over to you--where do you fall on the green flower fandom? Yea or Nay?
