Green Headed Coneflower, also called Cutleaf Coneflower, is an upright lanky perennial that branches at the top half. The stems are smooth, light green and clad in alternate drooping blades.  For 1-2 months beginning in summer, stems terminate in clusters of daisy-like heads.  The young cones are green with unique widely spaced disc florets that impart a pincushion-like appearance.  The cones turn yellow as the disc florets mature and finally morph into golden brown seed heads as winter approaches. This species often forms colonies from long underground rhizomes.
