Product Details

The strawflower name does not disappoint; these flowers really do appear like colored straw. An everlasting cut flower, the stiff, papery bracts never wilt! Swiss Giants are extra-large, double blooms on long stems in many delightfully bright shades; great for borders and attracting pollinators. Plants thrive in heat and tolerate drought.
