Helichrysum everlasting hardy annuals


Helichrysum everlasting hardy annualsThe Helichrysum are fine everlasting hardy annuals, that grow best in a mixture of three parts peat and one part sandy loam. May be readily raised from seed sown in a cold frame in March, or cuttings taken off at a joint will strike in peat and sand.

They bloom during July and August. For winter decoration the flowers should be gathered in a young state, as they continue to develop after being gathered.

The height of the Helichrysum differs from one to six feet, but most of them are two feet high.
