Product Description

Strawflower 'Dragon Fire'
Bracteantha bracteata

A versatile and textural addition to the cutting garden, strawflower can be used both fresh and dried for use in fall bouquets and wreaths. Deep, rich wine colored double flowers ride atop long, strong stems and bloom midsummer to frost. Also known as everlasting flowers, the color and shape of these papery blooms will last indefinitely when dried. Pollinators love them.
