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.
Details: Plant type: annual Height: 36-42” Site: full sun Days to maturity: 80-90 days Plant spacing: 12” Approx seeds per packet: 100
How to Grow: Start seed indoors in trays 6 weeks before last frost. Seed requires light to germinate so do not cover. Bottom water until seedlings emerge. Transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
Harvesting/Vase Life: Pick when flowers are ½ way open and before they are pollinated. Expect a vase life of 7 days. To dry, remove foliage and hang upside down in warm, dark place until firm.
