Helichrysum Bracteatum Rose

Helichrysum (Helichrysum Bracteatum Rose) - Easy and fast growing from Helichrysum seed, Strawflower, is a hardy perennial native to Australia. In most areas of the United States, however, it is grown as a summer annual. The 36 - 40 inch tall plants have 5 inch long oblong-lanceolate leaves and double blooms often over 2 1/2 inches across. Flowers of this species are great as cut flowers and when they are dried, the papery flowers will last indefinitely. The plants are easy to grow from flower seed and make excellent container plants. Helichrysum has several common names such as Strawflower, Paper Daisy, and Everlasting Daisy. Many gardeners grow Helichrysum Paper Daisy for the purpose of drying the everlasting blooms for dried arrangements, wreaths and crafts.

Helichrysum Everlasting flowers do best in full sun with a well-drained soil mix. In the greenhouse, you can use a soil mix consisting of 1 part peat moss to 2 parts loam and sand. Strawflower plants need to be well watered and allowed to dry before watering again. During the spring and summer months, fertilize the plants monthly with a balanced fertilizer diluted to 1/2 the strength recommended on the label. Even though this rose Paper Daisy plant is considered to be an annual, when growing in the landscape, it tends to re-seed by dropping its own flower seed on the ground. With the right conditions the Helichrysum flower seeds will germinate the following spring and new flowers will appear.

For earlier blooms, sow Strawflower seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before planting time. Helichrysum seeds can be directly sown outdoors once frost season has passed and temperatures are consistently warm..

Additional Policies and FAQs

When To Plant ?

The best time to plant in your area depends on the climate and rainfall patterns as well as the species you are planting. In cool climates, plant annuals, perennials or mixtures of annuals and perennials in spring, early summer or late fall. Fall plantings should be late enough so that seeds do not germinate until spring. Perennials can also be sown in early fall provided that there are at least 10-12 weeks of growing time before the plants go dormant for the winter. Late fall plantings are advantageous when supplemental irrigation cannot be provided and adequate rainfall is anticipated in the spring.

In mild climates, plant during the cooler months of the year, fall through spring, for best results. Fall plantings done prior to periods of rainfall will insure an early display of flowers the following spring.

Cold Treatment

Dampen a paper towel, place the flower seeds on the towel and seal it in a ziploc bag. Place the bag in the refrigerator for 3 - 4 weeks.

What is an heirloom or heritage seed?
The terms heirloom and heritage are synonymous. An heirloom plant is an open-pollinated, cultivated plant, or cultivar. Heirloom plants are not used in modern large-scale agricultural, but they were traditionally grown during earlier periods in human history. All heirloom seed are open-pollinated.
What is the difference between open-pollinated and hybrid seeds?
Open-pollinated plants are pollinated by birds, insects, wind, or other natural means. Under these conditions the plant will produce seeds naturally. When these seeds are harvested and re-planted they will reproduce the same plant as the parent. Conversely, a hybrid plant is the result of controlled pollination of inbred parent plants. The plant’s seeds are often sterile and, if they do germinate, they will not reliably produce the same plant as the parent or the yields.
What is the difference between GMO and non-GMO seeds?
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic substance has been changed using genetic engineering methods. Non-GMO seeds have not been genetically changed, and they are traditionally the same as they were originally created. Non-GMO seeds have all of the nutrition that animal and human bodies need for maximum growth and nutrition. Traditional seeds grow into plants that have been consumed for thousands of years. Non-GMO seeds offer you the peace of mind that the foods you grow and eat are as nature intended.
