The strawflower is a great plant for fresh cut flowers as well as dried flowers. They really stand out in gardens, due to their bright rich colours. They grow to 24-30" tall and do best in full sun. They come in a range of colours, red, yellow, and orange. They start blooming approximately in July and will continue to bloom till the freezing temperatures return.
We will have these plants available at the market on Wednesday and Saturday along with statice, verbena, snapdragons, foxgloves, and dahlias. We will also have the tomatoes and peppers. The castor bean, will also be available (see the picture from Monday's blog post) along with the perennials and succulents.
