About Strawflower Seeds - Purple Red

Helichrysum bracteatum

Also known as Golden Everlasting

Sometimes the simple, descriptive names are best. In this case, we can't think of anything better to call this lovely Strawflower cultivar! In a deep, saturated and jewel-like tone, Strawflower Purple Red is offset by its bright yellow center. Easy to grow and a champion in hot and arid regions, Strawflower is a favorite of florists and crafters for its "everlasting" tendencies.
