Perennial in Zone 8-9, grown as an annual. Faithful standby in everlasting bouquets; also good in fresh arrangements. Reaches 2–2½' on stiff winged bright-green stems. Flowers may be gathered for drying many times throughout summer.
Culture: Seed is rubbed for easier germination, which takes 5–14 days at 70°. Some light should reach the seed. Vernalize seedlings at 50–55° until they reach the 5-leaf stage, then increase temperatures to 60–70°. Grow in full sun. Tolerant of dry conditions.
All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.
Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
