  • $ 3.45

Mixed Color Strawflowers are a an easy to grow summer annual and will provide loads of blooms for fresh or dried arrangements.The Strawflower Mix includes, deep reds, pinks, apricot, and yellow. Helichrysum plants can grow up to 3 fall tall and will begin blooming in mid summer. For drying purposes cut the flower heads while they are still tight buds. Hang them upside down in a cool place to dry for several weeks. The stems can sometimes be weakened during the drying process and the addition of a floral wire before hanging will give the stem added support. 

Each seed packet contains a minimum of 45 seeds. The seeds are small and tricky to count so I always add extras. Each order comes with complete growing instructions. Strawflowers will grow and bloom best in at least 6 hours of full sunlight. Helichrysum is drought tolerant once established.
