Irish Poet Tassel Flower

         
 
8 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.

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!

What are the pros? as a cut flower

What are the cons? none

Review:

First time growing these. I sowed the seeds in a protected place in my garden and they germinated nicely but they didn't take off until I transplanted the small starts to sunnier areas. They look pretty enough in my garden but they look spectacular as a cut flower with some of my smaller sunflowers. The photo on this website is pretty accurate as far as color. BRIGHT orange but rather small size flower heads on thin stalks so the color is not overwhelming. I will grow these every year from now on. I would give 5 stars if the leaves were prettier.....
