BRACTEANTHA – Straw Flower

Tried & True Bracteantha

Tried & True Bracteantha

These Bracteantha or Straw Flowers have gorgeous, large flowers which have a paper-like feel. The dark green narrow foliage lets the unique blooms shine. The flowers have a distinct double daisy look, but there is an important difference – true petals are found only at the center 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. Low maintenance and great in virtually any garden setting from garden beds and borders to baskets and window boxes. Flowers can be cut and dried.
