Helichrysum bracteatum
FLOWER-HELICHRYSUM STRAWFLOWER tall mix makes fantastic cut flowers. The colorful medley of strawflowers is great for ever-lasting dried flowers. This dazzler will radiate color all over the garden. The parts of the strawflower that look like petals are actually stiff, modified leaves called bracts. Strawflowers will thrive in hot, full sun areas, they will grow in any well-drained garden soil & they tend to have dry leaves at the base. Few other flowers can provide such a show of color throughout the year. Plant seeds as soon as the soil is warm & there is no danger of frost.

Sow 6mm deep in seed trays or punnets, keep moist. Transplant to the final flowering position when 5-7cm high. Can also be sown directly in soil.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
