A great summer performer. The unique, brightly coloured textural blooms flower in a variety of spiky shapes and includes lemon, apricot, cream, cranberry and orange flower heads. Keep cutting to produce more stems. Flower heads get bigger over time, but cut before they make see. Remove 80% of the foliage at harvest. Long lasting cut flower. To dry, hang freshly cut stems upside down in a warm dark place for 2-3 weeks or until they are firm to the touch.
