Green flowers aren't everybody's first choice but if you've ever grown them you know how useful they are for creating a buffer between hot shades. They're also welcome additions to arrangements, framing brighter blooms like foliage does, but with more interesting form. The professional flower arrangers we know wouldn't be without them. Green Star is a very good grower for early season plantings and performs nicely for later plantings, too.
