The mass flower displays on a lovely, compact mounding growth habit, coupled with small dark green leaves and glowing orange red everlasting flowers that attract butterflies make this an excellent garden plant. A great rockery, border or pot plant. It performs best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. Keep the water up to it, especially during the flowering period, as dry soil conditions will reduce the flowering. The silky, papery flowers are great for drying and can last for years when dried properly. Pick in bud and hang upside down till dry.
