Product Description

Strawflower ‘Copper Red’
Helichrysum bracteatum (m.)

A versatile and textural addition to the cutting garden, strawflower can be used fresh and also dried for use in fall bouquets and wreaths. These rusty red-orange flowers have a luminous quality - the eye-catching yellow center glows in the garden. Also known as everlasting flowers, the color and shape of these papery blooms will last indefinitely when dried. Pollinators love them.
