Bracteantha bracteata cv Apricot Peach * Apricot Peach Straw Flower, Paper Flower

Bracteantha bracteata Apricot Peach is a long blooming annual. The Straw Flower plants grow 2-3 feet tall and wide. The blossoms dry well and are great for dry arrangements. Plants are often hard to find, so planting from seed may likely prove the most practical way to grow this spectacular Australian annual plant. Seeds sown in Fall will display flowers from Spring through Fall. Bracteanta bracteata will withstand the heat of Western Australia but require some moisture to get established.
