Helichrysum Tall Double Mix

Helichrysum Tall Double Mix (Helichrysum bracteatum (Everlasting Aureum Superbum))

These were also new for me this year. They were supposed to be 2-3 feet, and some were, but some grew almost as tall as me (5'7"). Very interesting, and I loved the cone shape bud.

These look wonderful! I'll have to give them a go next year, almost had me this time round. :-)

Thanks! I did dry some by hanging, but the center color faded from yellow to beige and the flower petals bent back. But the buds dried perfectly.

We've had many cold nights with frost and these still have flowers! Although they are sheltered somewhat... Definitely growing them again next year. : )
