Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Strawflower, a half-hardy annual that withstands light frosts, was introduced to England in 1799, and has since been treasured for its everlasting flowers that are ideal for dried arrangements. These seeds contain a mixture of yellow, orange, white, and purple flowers, which are all handsome in the summer border.
Native Distribution: Australia
Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after the last frost. Alternatively, direct sow into a well-drained, drier soil after all danger of frost has passed. Approximately 25 seeds per packet.
