3 to 4' tall 75-80 days to flower Bracteantha bracteata

We love these luminous ruby blooms, easy to grow and impressively abundant! We tuck strawflowers both fresh and dry in vases & wreaths as well as garlic braids; we also dry them as individual heads to add delight to wrapped gifts like confetti, as our dear friend Kira taught us.

Last but not least, strawflower blooming several weeks after fall frost in fall, so they’re one of the final flowers we enjoy along with the bees, undaunted along with calendula, phacelia and feverfew.

    Bloomed from July to Frost far outperforming the Apricot mix. Gorgeous color that mixes well in bouquets with dark dahlias.

      We are so glad to hear you are enjoying this variety!

    Yes, I agree with Melissa Knox. This was an extremely robust and productive strawflower which left the Apricot mix in the dust. It mixes with dark dahlias and with purple celosia. Fabulous.

      So glad to hear of your success with this variety.

Organic Bright Rose Strawflower

When to sow (Transplant Only): Sow indoors 4-6 weeks before final frost.

Seed Depth: barely cover (needs light to germinate)
Days to Germination: 7-10 days at 70-75 F

Sowing & seedling care: At Fruition we sow in soil blocks, 2 seeds per cell. Mist to avoid covering seeds with displaced soil. Thin to 1 & transplant after danger of frost.

Full Sun      Plant spacing after thinning: 12 inches
Days to Flower: 75-80      Height: 3-4 feet

Harvest: Cut when 2-3 layers of petals have unfurled for best longevity, since strawflower opens significantly after cutting. For dry bouquets, hang stems upside down until dry so they remain straight. Harvesting increases yield.
