Description

Golden-red strawflower which I love growing in the garden, fabulous growing in pots (and looks good for months) and is of course brilliant picked and dried. We stud silver birch garlands with it over our fireplace for Christmas and it (honestly) keeps its colour for years.

Care Tips

Plant out after the last frosts. Feed and deadhead to prolong the flowering period.
