Also known as the Strawflower or the Everlasting flower, this daisy-like plant is related to Helychrysums - a popular cottage garden plant that is enjoying a bit of a comeback. The attention-grabbing flowers are what makes this garden annual so unusual and what gave it the name of 'everlasting flower' - you really must grow them to see what the fuss is all about!
As the big, intensely yellow blooms of Granvia Gold mature, they develop a deep orange centre giving the plant a bright golden glow. But that's not its most unusual feature - if you touch the petals, you'll be amazed to find that the actually feel like paper!
Compact and easy to grow, these bushy annuals make perfect container plants - ideal for brightening up patios and balconies as they can be moved wherever you want them.
Easy to grow and great for filling gaps in borders, they provide long lasting colour and make an excellent cut flower, lasting for weeks - even months if you hang a bunch up to dry for a couple of weeks after picking.
Supplied as 6 x jumbo plug plants for planting straight out after all risk of frost has passed, or alternatively pot up and grow on for 3-4 weeks. Plants reach H50cm (20in) x W50cm (20in).
