Description

All the strawflowers are fashionable with florists at the moment and this is the best of them.

I love this plant, a mix of every tone of coffee, buff, peach and salmon, beautiful harvested and used fresh as a cut flower and it dries brilliantly too.

Care Tips

Feed and deadhead to prolong the flowering period.
