The rich plum-pink paper daisy is the ruby jewel in the crown of any summer garden. A floating gem of a flower, its performance can withstand summers harsh heat. Helichrysum flowers have been an outstanding selection from the 2020 Diggers Flower Trials and can be grown in a variety of garden situations from the perennial to dry garden or a flower meadow. The long flowering performer is an excellent cut flower and the ultimate dried flower which hold the jewel colour for long-lasting beauty.
Tip pruning when Helichrysum plants are approx. 20cm will encourage more flower stems. Regularly deadhead to encourage repeat flowering throughout the summer season. To dry the flower, harvest soon after the flower opens, remove excess foliage and hang upside down in a well-ventilated position out of direct sunlight.
