great strawflowers

I've bought Pinetree Garden's tall helichrysum mix for quite a few years now. It has grown well for me both in Wisconsin and now in Massachusetts, and reliably produces a great display of vary-colored flowers, enough for me to cut and dry many for winter bouquets and still have a nice display and more flowers for fresh late-summer bouquets.
