Growing Helichrysum Mixed Flower: Helichrysum bracteatum is the most well known and is probably the best of all the everlasting flowers. 'King Sized Formula Mixed' is a special selection of large flowered, extra double strawflowers. The mixture is the best choice for professional growers, giving a superb array of brilliant colours, including fiery red, dark pink, rose, copper, gold, yellow and white. The daisy like-flowers, of papery texture and appearance reach up to 6.5 cm (2½in) wide. Growing to around 3ft (90cm ) tall, Helichrysum bracteatum are easy to cultivate and established plants grow well with little or no attention. The flowers bloom from mid-summer right up to frost, they prefer a position in full sun and will do well in poor to average soils. They tolerate heat and drought conditions and they can survive light frosts. In the greenhouse, the plants will bloom non-stop from ten weeks after sowing and will continue to flower until frost gets them in the landscape. Helichrysum make one of the finest subjects for bouquets, apart from being useful for beds and borders. They are also an excellent dried flower, the papery flowers give an excellent natural colour. Propagating Strawflower Plants: Strawflower Plants can be propagated by softwood cuttings or grown from seed which should be sown indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date. Keep the temperature within the growing medium at 70° F. Germination will take place within 7-10 days. Plant them 9-15" apart in the garden once the soil warms to about 55° F.
