Annual. Dwarf Strawflowers in mixed colors. Scaled-down plants reach about 15” tall, thrive in hot and dry conditions. They would be worth growing even if they didn’t make some of the loveliest dried flowers around, but, fortunately, they do! A splendid mix of reds, yellows, pinks and whites add stunning diversity of color to your everlasting arrangements.

What are the pros? Grows in hot and dry places

What are the cons? Taller varieties hate wind

Review:

We have yellow strawflowers growing in the paddocks around our farm. Locally, the native yellow variety grow well in cracks between rocks and dry rough pastures. They pop up on their own without a problem. Having Christmas in Summer in Australia, it isn't unusual to go for a walk through the paddocks collecting the flowers for drying. My wife's wedding bouquet was primarily made from the dried flowers of the tall mixed variety and the local yellow. After 20 years the bouquet is still in one piece and has held their colour. The seed for the coloured varieties are just as easy to grow. Choose a dry, full sun and hot position. Scatter the seed, give it a good water. Wait a week and water again. Ignore them from then on and they should grow on their own and flower. If you live in a windy area, choose the Tom Thumb variety. The Tall Mixed are good for background colour. Either way, don't crowd them in a mixed garden as they don't handle the canopy nature of other plants.
