Xerochrysum bracteatum
Member $3.95

A native Australian flower that was introduced to Europe way back in 1799 making it a true old-fashioned heirloom! These Everlastings (aka Strawflower) are as popular today as they were 200 years ago. We grew them in our trials last year and had a continuous supply of long lasting cut flowers in gorgeous pastel shades from four months. Dry the flowers for even longer beauty.

Everlasting paper-like flowers dry well but its the excess of pinkish shades of a mass sowing - where it is unforgetable. Our famous everlasting mix. Sufficient seed for 5 square metres.
