An attractive annual from Western Australia, and is one of the plants that contribute so much to the spectacular wildflower displays there that draw many tourists to visit and photograph. It has fine bright green green leaves and many upright stems to between 30 and 40 cm high. They have golden-yellow flowers with surrounding bracts that are papery and dry well for flower arrangements and other uses. Pick flowers to be dried in the morning or during the day and hang upside down in an airy place until dry.
SEED SOWING – Seed germination is in one to three weeks. If growing in the garden, sprinkle direct where they are to grow and gently rake so that seeds are barely covered or sit on the surface, and keep moist. Alternately plant in pots using the same method. This plant is threatened in the wild, but is readily grown in gardens which will help preserve it from disappearing.
