Annual. Formerly Helichrysum. The freeblooming strawflower is good for border color and excellent for drying. Staffer Emily Skrobis is not much of a flower person, but she’s got room in her food-focused heart for strawflower: “I love how stiff and lasting they are – I don’t have to worry about crushing them or keeping them pristine. They’re so easy to dry. Just pick and forget and keep them in bowls around your house to admire in the cold months.”
All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.
Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
