Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Strawflower was introduced from Australia to England in 1799, and has been since treasured for its everlasting flowers that are ideal for dried arrangements. A half-hardy annual that withstands light frosts, Strawflower grows to five feet in a sunny garden site. These seeds contain a mixture of yellow, orange, white, and purple flowers, which are also handsome in the summer border. Sow seed after the last frost in spring.
Approximately 25-30 seeds per pack.
