Irish Poet Tassel Flower

         
 
9 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Emilia javanica) Beautiful bright orange variety for naturalistic gardens. This annual has long stems and small, bright orange flowers in clusters. These flowers have once been described as the windswept hair of an Irish poet. Suitable as a specialty cut flower, it is a colorful filler for summer bouquets. Grow in full sun on a soil with good drainage. Tassel Flower was introduced to England from Asia in 1799 and was also known as "Flora's Paintbrush" in Victorian times.

Review:

Like other reviewers have said, the color and the daintiness of these flowers are two great assets of Irish Poet (Emilia) Tassel Flower. I live near Chicago, IL, and here is my experience growing them: I planted the seeds in late fall 2017. The plants came up slowly in 2018, but it was well worth the wait. Because there were so many of the plants (I thinned them down to 4"-6" between each plant) I had a good show of color for, hm, maybe 4 weeks, starting at the end of June. I'll have to take better notes this year. At this writing, it's May 29, 2019, and the "volunteer" seedlings are about 1/2" high. (We had a very cold spring; I'm not sure if that affected their emergence.) Lots of seedlings—I will be thinning them when they get to about 2", and I will try to transplant some of the ones that I thin out to other areas of my garden. I did some transplanting like that last year and it worked fine.

What are the pros? Beautiful. Strong will to live

What are the cons? Slow, Weak starting

Review:

The sweetest, beautiful, little bright orange flower. Absolutely lovely accent in bouquets. Very cheery in the garden. That being said, they were very difficult for me to get going. Slow to germinate, and when they did the plants were little and weak for quite awhile, and not all of them made it (they also got hit with a thunderous rain storm which didnt help). I planted the ones that survived, not thinking they would do well, but after several weeks in the ground, and even after some caterpillars ate all the leaves off some of them, they finally perked up and bloomed all fall, even if the plants did remain a little straggly and thin. Actually the ones that survived were tough little survivors. They would have looked better planted enmasse, or with some fuller plants. I will definitely grow again. The flower is so lovely and sweet.

Review:

It is a unique and brightly colored flower that I used in my floral bouquets as an accent. Had many positive comments about it. Lasted a long time in vase. A very 'cheerful' flower. Will most definitely be growing it again!

What are the pros? Wonderful for softening garden

What are the cons? None whatsoever

Review:

I first grew these in an heirloom garden in St. Louis and now have to grow them for friends and family all through the area. Irish Poet is easy to grow, dependable and the delicate little flowers give a delightful airy look to the garden. Their bright orange color is a wonderful jolt of color without being garish. Always an attention grabber!
