Strawflower

Helichrysum bracteatum
Strawflower was introduced from Australia to England in 1799. It is also known as Everlasting Flower for the long-lived color of its flowers when dried. A half-hardy annual that withstands light frosts, it offers a wide selection of colors, ranging from silvery pastel pink and white to fiery red and rusty, terracotta brown.
