Description

Tom Thumb Mixed: An Australian native and popular ‘Everlasting’ flower. Its dwarf, double daisy-like flowers of straw-like texture and appearance makes it one of the finest subjects for bouquets, apart from being useful for beds and borders. Grows best in a warm and sunny position in a well-drained moist soil, which is slightly alkaline.

To dry for use: Cut flowers at the main stem just before the center petals open, remove foliage, tie in small bunches and hang head downwards in a cool and well-ventilated place.
