Dreamtime Jumbo Yellow strawflowers bright blooms have a papery feeling that appeals to kids of all ages.
Strawflowers are best grown in full sun (at least six to eight hours of direct sun per day) and well-drained soil or potting mix. Strawflowers will tolerate part shade, but they don't usually bloom as profusely, and may get a little leggy as they stretch for light. Take care not to overwater these plants; it's better to keep them a little too dry than consistently too wet. If you grow strawflowers in pots, be sure to use a quality potting mix; don't fill the pot with soil from your yard.
While strawflowers don't require fertilizer to bloom well, you will typically enjoy more flowers if you feed them regularly with a general-purpose fertilizer. Or, use a time-release fertilizer at planting time; these types of products slowly release nutrients into the soil over the course of the growing season.
