Helichrysum bracteatum

The old fashioned flowers are exceptionally bright and colourful in the garden, range from 5-7.5cm (2-3") across and still make one of the prettiest dried flowers going. Upright, branching plants can reach up to 90cm (3') in height. When harvesting for dried flowers, cut stems before the flowers fully open and hang upside down to dry in a shaded well ventilated site.

How to Grow

In late May or early June, sow seed directly outdoors 6mm (1/4") deep and 5cm (2") apart then thin to 30cm (1') apart when seedlings are 5-7.5cm (2-3") tall. To produce extra large flowers, remove all but 1 bud from each flower stem. Straw flower does best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. It also tolerates growing in poor or drier soils.
