Pretty Papery Petals

The tall strawflowers were too tall for my garden, so I was happy to be able to find a shorter mix here. Since the flowers hold as everlastings, they are great in the garden too because they look good even after they are "done". As a surprise benefit, I saw a butterfly visit one repeatedly.

Will plant this flower again and again

The mix is a nice variety of colors. They make the best dried flower with nonfading vibrant colors! They bloom all summer, well into the frost.
