Bracteantha bracteata – Everlasting Daisy

This plant is variable, from annual forms to low growing perennial sub-shrubs. There are many colourful annual types available as seed and as bedding plants, as well as lovely named longer lasting varieties. As well as being beautiful garden plants, the blooms are great for cut flower work, either fresh or as dried flowers which will last for years.
They flower best in sunny spots and with regular soil moisture, and also like good drainage. Feed lightly through the warm months. Picking the flowers will help to prune the plant and maintain a good plant shape. To use as dried flowers, pick while in bud and hang upside down to dry.
They were formerly known as Helichrysum, and are now known as Xerochrysum bracteatum.
