This vigorous, easy-to-grow filler produces tall stems that are a versatile and wonderful textural ingredient for bouquets. Early in the season, their yellow blooms do not make a notable cut flower, but after blooms fade, ‘Attraxa’ puts on a show. The glaucous green seedpods dry to the color of wheat and are a great choice for bouquets and dried arrangements.

Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 60-90 days

How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplanting out after all danger of frost has passed, or direct seed as soon as ground can be worked. Stagger plantings every 2 weeks for an extended harvest.
Harvest when seedpods are fully formed and the top blooms have faded. Expect a vase life of 7-10 days. To dry, hang upside down in a warm, dry place until firm.
