Description

Helichrysum (or strawflowers) have turned out to be super-hardy in our trials over the last couple of years. Best planted out (along with the matching hardy annual clarkia here) before the frosts are over in May to grow into super-substantial plants to flower all summer and autumn. The flowers dry brilliantly and keep their colour for years.

This collection contains 5 seedlings each of:
  • Xerochrysum bracteatum 'Salmon Rose' (syn. Helichrysum)
  • Clarkia elegans 'Salmon Rose'

Care Tips

Cut flowers regularly for the vase and to prolong flowering. Remove seedheads if you do not want it to self-sow.
