Rhodanthe humboldtiana – Golden Cluster Everlasting

A less common native everlasting annual daisy with large clustered heads of yellow, papery flowers. These open late winter and flower into early spring, and can produce spot flowers at other times as well. This is a great variety to create wildflower meadows.The plant is attractive in its own right, with grey green foliage and a neat upright habit.

Grow from seed, sown in early winter, either straight to the ground where it is to grow, or in containers. Seed germinates in one to two weeks, though some seeds can lie dormant until the right conditions come along. Sprinkle seed lightly and only just cover with soil….if they are planted too deeply they will struggle to grow.
