BRACTEANTHA – Straw Flower

(brack tee AN thah)

Tried & True Bracteantha

Tried & True Bracteantha

The flowers have a distinct double daisy look, but there is an important difference. True petals are found only at the centre of each bloom – the display comes from the surrounding petal-like bracts. These bracts are straw and paper-like. They bloom from early spring right through to early fall and offer a neat, compact growth habit. Great in virtually any garden setting from beds and borders to baskets and window boxes. Flowers can be cut and dried.
