Xerochrysum bracteatum

A delightful mix of super dwarf strawflowers!  At most plants reach 12-18", being very compact and profuse in flowers all summer long. Color range from pinks, to purples, yellows and oranges.  These everlasting flowers are dry on the plant and make cute mini cutflower arrangements.  Easy to grow and drought tolerant, these make excellent mounding border flowers.

We prefer to direct sow around the last frost date. Cover lightly with a scant amount of soil. Thin to 12" between plants. Or, get a head start by sowing indoors 4 weeks prior to last frost date. Tolerates a wide variety of conditions from shade to full sun, but prefers well-drained soil.
