Everlasting Daisy / Paper Daisy / Strawflower Helichrysum Monstrosum Mixed – 250 Seeds

(Helichrysum bracteatum)

 

Known as an 'everlasting' because the flowers will last indefinitely when dried. Both the color and shape will last indefinitely.

 

Helichrysum bracteatum is the most well known and is probably the best of all the everlasting flowers.

'King Sized Formula Mixed' is a special selection of large flowered, extra double strawflowers. The mixture is the best choice for home and professional growers, giving a superb array of brilliant colours, including fiery red, dark pink, rose, copper, gold, yellow and white. The daisy like-flowers, of papery texture and appearance reach up to 6.5 cm wide.

 

Growing to around 3ft tall, Helichrysum bracteatum are easy to cultivate and established plants grow well with little or no attention. The flowers bloom from mid-summer right up to frost, they prefer a position in full sun and will do well in poor to average soils. They tolerate heat and drought conditions and they can survive light frosts.

 

In the greenhouse, the plants will bloom non-stop from ten weeks after sowing and will continue to flower until frost gets them in the landscape.

 

Helichrysum make one of the finest subjects for bouquets, apart from being useful for beds and borders. They are also an excellent dried flower, the papery flowers give an excellent natural colour.
