The mass flower displays on a lovely, compact mounding growth habit, coupled with small dark green leaves and glowing orange red everlasting flowers that attract butterflies make this an excellent garden plant. A great rockery, border or pot plant. It performs best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. Keep the water up to it, especially during the flowering period, as dry soil conditions will reduce the flowering. The silky, papery flowers are great for drying and can last for years when dried properly. Pick in bud and hang upside down till dry.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
