'jade' looks wonderful in pictures. would like to hear from anyone growing this. does it really have the green tips on the petals? the center really green? i am often skeptical of the glossy photos in the plant catalogs! lol

I haven't noticed any green tips on the petals, but the cone is a deep forest green. Very nice plant.

Are the cones really green? I picked one up from my usual nursery and it has begun to bloom but the cones are yellow/orange almost like the regular white swan cone flower. I'm wondering if the wrong tag was in it?
