Bracteantha 'Buttery Sunshine'
Fantastic, bright yellow, buttery, papery, everlasting flowers bloom from April and all through summer. The deep green foliage slowly makes a mound growing to around 40cm tall, this condensed bushy mound producing a seemingly endless procession of large buds. Flowers have a papery feel and are one of the longest lasting cut flowers, indeed lasting "forever" when completely dry! It is surprisingly frost hardy in a sheltered spot.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
