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 colour 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 is 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 full sun position and will do well in poor to average soils. They tolerate heat and drought conditions and can survive light frosts. 

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

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

Strawflowers and Poppies come winter

Nothing planted yet…35c in Bris all week, post-floods, waiting till late fall early winter to sow and see. Fast shipping, I like the plain packaging, good value all around. The test will be when colour pops thru the soil.

Germinated fast in pellets

I sowed the everlasting daisy seeds in pellets kept in a plastic container and they germinated within 3-4 days. This is the first time I have used pellets so, I didn’t quite know how long I should keep them in the plastic container. Perhaps I should have transferred them into pots. After a few days they seemed to lose their shape. I once more added more seeds and after a week I have transferred them into pots and kept them outside. I am looking forward to their growth and seeing the flowers.
